Philadelphia Inquirer Refuses To Support GOP PA Senate Primary Candidate

In an editorial by the editor, The Philadelphia Inquirer has refused to support any of the candidates running for the Republican Party primary to run in the upcoming Pennsylvania Senate election.

Headline: “We wanted to vote in the Republican primary this year. We can’t,” states the op-ed that although the board of directors leans on Democrat, they have supported Republican races in previous years and have always found “points of agreement, lingering moments of mutual respect and an appreciation for the kind of apolitical qualifications worthy of objective praise”.

“Most fundamentally, we were all operating in the same reality,” the board writes. “That cannot be said in 2022.”

When we sent a poll to Republican candidates in the Senate race to determine their stance on a range of issues, we found that nearly everyone in the field found our questions biased and unfair.

According to them, one of the most problematic questions we asked was: who won the 2020 presidential election? The only two options in the multiple choice format were Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Only one candidate – Jeff Bartos – agreed to acknowledge the reality.

If any of these Republicans win the general election, they will represent Pennsylvania at the next State of the Union address. We guarantee that it will not be Donald Trump walking into the US Capitol to deliver the speech. The 2020 elections are over. One candidate won, he lives at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and his name is Joe Biden.

How do you find points of agreement when you can’t agree on facts so basic they can be used in a sobriety test in the field?
