is one of the key swing areas in Raja's race for the Republican nomination for the 37th state Senate district, according to the .
“Raja brings a new approach to state government and a new vision to handle our state concerns," Uram said in a statement. "Raja brings to his candidacy these qualities and many more positive approaches to lead state government. Raja does not represent politics as usual. It’s time for a new approach."
“Raja, a true conservative, is the candidate for state Senate," Northrop said. "He’s not beholden to the unions and other liberal groups. He’s not running to enrich himself with public monies. Instead, he genuinely desires to serve the district with his extensive knowledge and expertise."
“Raja is the only true conservative running that can win," Reich said. "If you look at Mustio’s record, and compare it with other Allegheny County Democrats, you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference. Don’t let the union bosses control both sides of the aisle in Harrisburg. Vote for Raja, the conservative choice.”
Raja said in a release that he is honored to have the support of these Washington County leaders.
"I will need their help to get my message of conservative reform out to voters in Peters Township and across the district."
