WEAK ON CHINA CONGRESSMAN MATT CARTWRIGHT CO-SPONSORS TWO-MONTH-OLD BILL ONE DAY BEFORE RELEASING AN AD PATTING HIMSELF ON THE BACK FOR BACKING IT
HAZLETON – Today, Jim Bognet, Republican nominee for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 8th District, issued the following statement on Matt Cartwright’s desperate new television attack ad:
“Matt Cartwright’s coddling of China has finally caught up to him. In an act of clear desperation, China apologist Congressman Matt Cartwright is airing an ad bragging about a bill he co-sponsored to boost American production of PPE and reduce dependence of China. What Cartwright didn’t mention is that he waited two months to co-sponsor this bill and got on board one day before he released an ad touting it.
“Washington D.C. has changed Matt Cartwright – he is now nothing more than a cynical politician desperate to hold onto power.
“While Cartwright focuses on his own self-serving agenda, I will go to Washington to take on China and focus on an agenda that serves plumbers, truck drivers, factory workers, teachers, nurses, small business owners, cops, firefighters, and coal miners.”
