Doug Mastriano Wants Pennsylvania to Have DeSantis-Style Government
In support of Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was in Pittsburgh, Pa. on Friday.
In real-time, Mastriano engaged in Facebook live chats with thousands of Pennsylvanians during the COVID-19 lockdown. His campaign now focuses on encouraging people to "walk as free people," a key principle he emphasized in saying that mandatory masking of businesses and unequal closure applications were unconstitutional.
“My goal is to model my leadership as governor of the state in the fashion of Ron DeSantis, where it’s for the protection and the betterment of people, and actually upholding their constitutional rights, instead of treading upon them,” Mastriano told The Epoch Times.
Mastriano continued, adding that his actions as a state senator and the bills he proposed demonstrate how he would have handled the pandemic differently if he had been governor during the pandemic.
“We would have notified people of the threats, as delineated by the CDC and Department of Health, and then leave it up to the people themselves to decide whether to keep the mask on.
We’d leave it up to the people themselves, whether to take the jab or not. We’d leave it up to the businesses, whether they wanted to remain open, and what that would look like, being open or not,” Mastriano said.
