The former president chose his gubernatorial candidate just days before the election.
Former President Donald Trump has endorsed state Senator Doug Mastriano for governor.
“There is no one in Pennsylvania who has done more, or fought harder, for Election Integrity than State Senator Doug Mastriano,” Trump said in a statement through his Save America PAC.
“He will also Fight Violent Crime, Strengthen our Borders, Protect Life, Defend our under-siege Second Amendment, and Help our Military and our Vets. He is a fighter like few others, and has been with me right from the beginning, and now I have an obligation to be with him,” Trump added.
In February, Mastriano was subpoenaed by the January 6th panel over a tweet he sent speculating that the Pennsylvania 2020 election was compromised.
He will face off against candidates including former Representative Lou Barletta (R-PA) and former U.S. Attorney William McSwain. Both were considerably behind Mastriano in the latest poll.
The primary will take place in three days on May 17th.
