PHILADELPHIA, PA — In an impressive show of grassroots support, Dave McCormick, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, this week submitted a staggering 22,000 petition signatures in his bid to replace incumbent Democratic Senator Bob Casey. This number far surpasses the 2,000-signature threshold required for ballot placement, demonstrating broad backing from all 67 counties in the Keystone State.

“I’m proud that we’ve submitted over [22,000] signatures for my candidacy for the Senate representing all 67 counties… really a groundswell of support from across our great commonwealth,” McCormick said in a social media video. “I’m really excited to start this next phase of the campaign, to go lay the groundwork and really make the case for why I need to replace Bob Casey in the Senate.”

McCormick has positioned himself as a fresh voice in politics, promising leadership and independent ideas in contrast to what he describes as career politicians and rubber-stamp supporters of President Joe Biden’s administration.

His campaign platform echoes this sentiment with a focus on issues like law enforcement support, agriculture advocacy, economic reform, and national security expertise. As a Bronze Star recipient, former Under Secretary of Treasury, and Deputy National Security Advisor, McCormick brings a unique blend of military and bureaucratic experience to the race.

On law enforcement, McCormick has pledged to stand with police officers, an issue that resonates strongly in many Pennsylvania communities. He also seeks to champion the state’s agricultural sector, pledging to combat excessive regulations that impact Pennsylvania’s family farms.

Economic reform is another key part of McCormick’s platform. The former CEO of tech startup FreeMarkets and investment firm Bridgewater Associates criticizes the current economy under President Biden and promises to fight for change.

On the national security front, McCormick is committed to protecting American technology from Chinese theft. Drawing on his experience as a national security expert, he aims to advise on key issues and help negotiate the global response to crises.

McCormick’s campaign has garnered significant endorsements, including the backing of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania, all Republican members of Congress in the state, and 47 Pennsylvania Sheriffs. These endorsements, coupled with his deep pockets as a former hedge fund CEO, make him a formidable contender in the race.

This is McCormick’s second U.S. Senate campaign. A seventh-generation Pennsylvanian, West Point graduate, combat veteran, and Pennsylvania job creator, McCormick is ready to bring his leadership to the United States Senate. His battle plan for America’s renewal is clear, and his readiness to serve is evident in his willingness to hit the ground running.

As the campaign enters its next phase, McCormick aims to send a clear message: Pennsylvanians are ready for change. With his extensive experience in business, government, and the military, McCormick presents a compelling alternative to the status quo. The outpouring of support demonstrated by the petition signatures suggests that many Pennsylvanians believe McCormick might be the leader they need to usher in this change.
