(RepublicanWire.org) – The race for PA senator continues to rage. We know that the Democrat candidate, John Fetterman, just suffered a stroke and wants to legalize heroin.
But that’s just for starters. He openly opposes charters that would help poor students go to better schools.
Meanwhile, his own kids are enrolled in an elitist prep school.
Pennsylvania Senate hopeful John Fetterman (D.) opposes vouchers that let children in failing public school districts attend private and charter schools. But the progressive champion, who lives in one of Pennsylvania’s worst performing school districts, sends his kids to an elite prep school.
Fetterman opposes the school choice agenda that helps put kids in good schools. But at the same time, he sends his kids to Winchester Thurston School in Pittsburgh.
Tuition for that school is $34,250 a year. Fetterman sends them to this elite school because they live in the worst-performing district for public schools.
Fetterman’s campaign tries to contrast him as a working-class brand of candidate, by doing things like pointing to Mehmet Oz’s multiple homes and so forth. But that won’t wash, when the facts are put on the table for voters about who he actually is.
It’s not hard to see how this blatant hypocrisy on Fetterman’s part about education only helps Oz, whom two recent polls show is within striking distance of overtaking the Democrat in November. The ground-shaking lesson we learned from Glenn Youngkin‘s win in Virginia’s 2021 gubernatorial race can’t be forgotten; Republicans, if they’re smart, will take this ball and run with it.
