The media attack a Christian Republican in Pennsylvania

You know when a Republican politician is doing something right: a big-daily newspaper starts to attack.

That’s what happened when the Philadelphia Inquirer took aim at State Sen. Doug Mastriano, who’s running for governor of Pennsylvania.

In an attempted takedown of Mastriano, who’s leading the polls, the Inky headlined an attack piece: “Doug Mastriano embodies a Christian nationalist movement as he runs for governor.” See

A Christian! A nationalist! How dreadful!

“We have the power of God with us,” he told a recent rally. “We have Jesus Christ that we’re serving here. He’s guiding and directing our steps.”

The Inky commented in an alleged news article: “It was classic Mastriano — how God told him to run for governor and how he was the candidate who could save the state from its descent into evil.”

Mastriano, 58, is the front-runner for the Republican nomination for governor in the nation’s fifth-largest state. He has been at or near the top of almost every poll in the nine-person race with just a week left before Tuesday’s primary. 

While the Inky and other leftist news organizations emphasize Mastriano’s religious fervor, they tend to gloss over his rather substantial attributes. 

Mastriano was commissioned in the U.S. Army in 1986 and served on the Iron Curtain with the 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment in West Germany. While serving along the East German and Czechoslovakian borders, he witnessed the end of the Cold War and later deployed to Iraq for Operation Desert Storm in 1991 to liberate Kuwait. He served four years with NATO and deployed three times to Afghanistan. Mastriano was the director of NATO’s Joint Intelligence Center in Afghanistan, leading 80 people from 18 nations. He completed his career as a professor at the U.S. Army War College. He retired from the military as a colonel. See

He enjoyed a quick ascent into politics, earning a seat in 2019 to the Pennsylvania State Senate from a district just adjacent to my home in the central part of the state. 

Mastriano supports gun rights, charter schools, and lower taxes. He opposes vaccine mandates and abortion.

The candidate also supported moves to overturn the Pennsylvania vote after Donald Trump lost the state in 2020 by a mere 81,000 votes. In his first 100 days as governor, Mastriano said he would “immediately end all contracts with compromised voting machine companies” and push to enact various voting restrictions.

After eight years of an atrocious Democrat regime, many of us are relieved that we can cast our vote for a man who reflects what makes America great despite the harrumphing from the leftist media.
