America will COMPETE!

Mary Gay doesn’t like to toot her own horn… so allow me to for a minute… Have you heard of the COMPETES Act? This act will help provide the funding we need to compete in science, research, technology and innovation on an international scale. The COMPETES Act has passed the House with TWO …

We did it, Pennsylvania! Once again, the voters in PA-05 have enthusiastically sent us to the general election this November. Every day, I am grateful to my constituents for their trust in me and I am proud to represent each of them in Washington. Now, we are on to November and this elect…

Do you have a plan to vote?

John — we are EXACTLY ONE WEEK out. That means we are only 7 days away from Primary Day! Our team is doing everything we can to turn out supporters in the final week of the primary. Donate now to ensure we have the resources to finish strong. If you are in Pennsylvania, I also want to mak…

our last recourse to save abortion access

We don’t need to wait for the leaked information from last night to be fully official. We know that the GOP has been working towards this moment and it looks like they have effectively gamed the system and the Supreme Court has now voted to overturn Roe v. Wade. I don’t need to tell you h…

I don’t want to wake up on November 9th feeling like we could have done more. Every day I am motivated to give it my all to keep Pennsylvania from turning red this fall. I’m an organizer. I was the furthest thing from a career politician when I ran for office. I ran because I knew we deser…

all eyes on her

Mary Gay can outwork anyone, and the GOP knows it. Pennsylvania is the center of the Republicans’ strategy to regain control of Congress but Mary Gay is organizing hard across the commonwealth to make sure that doesn’t happen. And that puts a target on Mary Gay. Now the primary is just a …

We’ve still got work to do

Gun violence has become such a big part of our lives, invading the places where we work and play, our schools, and our places of worship. All the way back in 2001 I was fighting for gun violence prevention as a private citizen when I marched with the Million Mom March and we were still fig…
