West Chester, Pa.— Bill McSwain, Republican candidate for Governor, today announced that he has secured the endorsement of key Republicans in Chester and Cambria Counties.
First, in his home county, McSwain is proud to receive the formal endorsement of Chester County Commissioner Michelle Kichline:
“As a county commissioner, I know the importance of good government. As a mom and nearly lifelong resident of Pennsylvania, I am particularly alarmed at the increase in crime in our cities and towns. The state government in Harrisburg is a mess and businesses are leaving Pennsylvania every day. Pennsylvanians need a leader that cannot be intimidated. This is not a time for politics as usual. We need a conservative outsider to come in and shake things up. We need Bill McSwain. Bill is a former U.S. Attorney and Marine with a track record of fighting crime and standing up for our conservative values. Please join me in endorsing Bill McSwain as our Republican candidate for Governor. He has the leadership skills we all need to lift us out of these difficult times and will fight everyday for the security and freedom of Pennsylvania families.”
Additional Chester County endorsements come from long-time GOP activist and former national GOP convention delegate Jim McErlane, and from former GOP state party solicitor Joel Frank:
“Bill is a Marine and a conservative outsider who will bring much needed change and a fresh perspective to Harrisburg. Pennsylvania needs a conservative fighter as Governor who will put the people first and stand up for the security, rights, education and freedom of hard-working, law abiding, Pennsylvania families. Most importantly, Pennsylvania needs a proven leader with the courage of his convictions. We are proud to endorse our friend and lifelong Chester County resident, Bill McSwain.”
McSwain has also been formally endorsed by former Chairman of the Pennsylvania Republican Party, Rob Gleason, of Cambria County:
“Bill McSwain is a principled conservative who will never waiver in his defense of hard-working families and small business owners. As U.S. Attorney under President Trump, he stood up to radical liberal policies that threatened our communities, livelihoods, and freedoms. I know that Bill will represent and protect the interests of Cambria County and Western Pennsylvania, and I am proud to endorse Bill McSwain as the next Governor of our great commonwealth.”
Appointed by President Trump, McSwain’s record as US Attorney demonstrates his fierce defense of constitutional rights, dedication to upholding law and order, and history of putting criminals and corrupt politicians in jail.
Prior to becoming an attorney, Bill served as a scout/sniper platoon commander in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was born in Philadelphia and raised in Chester County, where he lives today with his wife, Stephanie, and their four children.More information on McSwain’s background and platform is available here.
