Billboards touting Republicans supporting Josh Shapiro for governor going up around Pittsburgh area
With billboards across Pennsylvania, a big-spending national committee that is connected to the Never Trump movement and high-profile neoconservatives is hoping to convince Republicans that it’s okay to cross party lines to support Democrat Josh Shapiro in the gubernatorial race.
The Republican Accountability PAC — a group that exists in a network of messengers and activist organizations that sprouted after Donald Trump’s victory in 2016 — will go up with more than 30 billboards on Tuesday as part of its overall $2 million spend in Pennsylvania hitting Republican Doug Mastriano.[…]
One of the PAC’s billboards reads, “I’m a conservative. I’m a gun owner. I’m voting Josh Shapiro,” and shows a picture of a man named James, of Farmington, Fayette County.
