Pennsylvania Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-Pa.) got a boost in the state’s gubernatorial race on May 14.

Former President Donald Trump endorsed Mastriano over former Rep. Lou Barletta (R-Pa.).

“There is no one in Pennsylvania who has done more, or fought harder, for election integrity than state Senator Doug Mastriano,” Trump said in a statement.

Mastriano will address election issues and will also fight crime, strengthen the U. S. borders, push pro-life policies, defend the Second Amendment, and help the U.S. military and military veterans, Trump added.

“He is a fighter like few others and has been with me right from the beginning, and now I have an obligation to be with him,” Trump said, calling Mastriano “a man who will never let you down.”

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement from President Trump, today. But the honor is not for me. It’s for the millions of hard-working Pennsylvanians who want their individual liberties restored, power returned to the people, and for their elected leaders to fulfill the America First—and Pennsylvania First—agenda,” Mastriano said in a statement.
