It was a crowded scene outside of the Lavery Brewing Company while supporters waited for Governor Tom Wolf and Senator Bob Casey. Both Casey and Wolf kicked off the “PA Votes Blue” bus tour across the commonwealth in Erie.
“I’ll continue to focus on education, access to quality healthcare, jobs, Pennsylvania is one of the leading states trade one or two with Maryland in job creation,” said Wolf.
Leaders from the Democratic party including Congressional candidate Ron DiNicola and State Representative candidate Bob Merski were also among the crowd. The main goal of the tour is to go to every community in the Pennsylvania region and deliver their message.
“The economy here in Erie and the comeback that your seeing in Erie shows what we can do when we work together,” said Casey.
Coordinators believe the bus tour kicking off at Lavery Brewing Company is also a recognition of how important the craft beer industry is to agriculture and commerce in Pennsylvania.
