Did Cowardly Cartwright’s Campaign Really Just Say That Out Loud?!
HAZLETON- Last Monday Jim Bognet, Former Trump Administration Official and Republican Nominee for Pennsylvania’s Eighth Congressional District, challenged Matt Cartwright to five debates, in five counties, on five television stations.
Yesterday, Politics PA reported on Cartwright accepting only one debate. Cartwright’s spokesperson rationalized that the reason he didn’t have to do more than that is because “he’s done over 100 open to the public events, like town halls and ‘coffees with your congressman’ throughout his time in office.”
He’s done 100 public events throughout his time in office?! He’s been in office for 8 years!! That means he’s averaged 12.5 events a year and just over one per month. Is that supposed to be a lot? What is he doing when he’s not in Washington if he’s only showing his face in the district once a month?!
“It’s amazing that Matt Cartwright has fewer public events per year than Penn State has football games,” said Bognet. “Seriously, what is Cartwright doing in Congress? He hasn’t passed meaningful legislation, he hasn’t stood up to China, and he hasn’t pushed back against the radicals in his party who want to turn America socialist. Enough is enough – Cartwright needs to stop hiding from his constituents and accept my debate challenge.”
