Doug Mastriano Continues to Dodge Questions As Josh Shapiro Continues to Build Broad Coalition at PA Chamber Dinner

Latest News

Shapiro: “Why aren’t you here? What are you hiding?”

As Doug Mastriano has spent his campaign dodging questions, “physically block[ing]” and running away from reporters, and only talking to far-right fringe outlets, he continued his “No Comment Express” tour by refusing to show up to the Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry’s annual dinner to avoid answering questions about his extreme agenda.

“I don’t know what this guy’s hiding,” Josh Shapiro said at the event. “He doesn’t answer questions from the media. He doesn’t answer questions from everyday Pennsylvanians. And unless you think like him, unless you vote like him, unless you worship like him or marry like him, then you don’t count in his Pennsylvania. I want to be a governor for all 13 million Pennsylvanians, whether you vote for me or not.”

Recently, Mastriano has also refused to answer questions about an interview where he said that women should be charged with murder if they have an abortion under his proposed ban, which would have no exceptions for rape or incest.

Meanwhile, Shapiro has done hundreds of interviews with media outlets across the political spectrum.

DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton said: “Doug Mastriano continues to hide to avoid answering questions about his extreme agenda to ban abortion with no exceptions and overturn free and fair elections if he disagrees with the results. Once again, Attorney General Josh Shapiro has proven he’s the only candidate for governor who will show up and fight for every single Pennsylvanian.”
