WASHINGTON – NRCC Chairman Tom Emmer released the following statement regarding the results of the PA-17 primary election:

“Congratulations to Jeremy Shaffer on his primary victory. As a software engineer and former Ross County Commissioner, Jeremy brings a fresh perspective to a district that has been failed by Democrat representation for too long. Pennsylvanians will reject more of the same reckless Democrat agenda that’s caused skyrocketing inflation, surging crime, and a border crisis.
