Pennsylvania 17


to Chris's Campaign

“This story of corporations lining their pockets at the expense of the public good is not new to our region. When globalization and lousy trade deals killed so many factories and gutted the economy in Western Pennsylvania, we learned what it means when huge and powerful corporations could not care less about the people who toiled to make them rich. They wanted to strip us for parts. Never again. We know a thing or two about standing strong against raw corporate power, and we never shy from a righteous fight.”

PA-17 is a new district (2020) on the Ohio border, composed of liberal-leaning suburbs around Pittsburgh as well as rural, conservative areas. Although Deluzio won his race by almost seven points against a strong opponent in a Biden +6 district, it is considered to favor more moderate views + Deluzio’s opponents often accuse him of being “too progressive” for the district.
