GOP logo in redA Pennsylvania pro-family activist believes Republican voters in The Keystone State should pick a true conservative to take over for retiring Senator Pat Toomey.

As One News Now has reported, Toomey was one of seven Republicans who voted to convict Donald Trump of inciting insurrection in his second impeachment trial. He did not seem to care about any potential political fallout, because he had already announced that he would be retiring at the end of 2022.

Diane Gramley, president of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, says Democrats are already poised to snatch the seat away from the GOP.  

"I know that our current lieutenant governor John Fetterman, who's very pro-LGBTQ, very pro legalized recreational marijuana -- he's thrown his hat in the ring on the Democratic side," Gramley reports.

Gramley, Diane (AFA of Pennsylvania)So she says the GOP must select someone who is truly more conservative than Toomey, someone who can fire up the base like Donald Trump did in 2016.

"He enthused the grassroots," the conservative asserts. "When Donald Trump won in 2016, they proved they could overpower, so to speak, the votes from the eastern part of the state and the Pittsburgh area."

So Gramley says the Pennsylvania GOP will decide whether a candidate can win statewide before endorsing him or her and helping with the campaign.

"It's going to be difficult," she concludes, "but we will see."
