Barnette Touts Strengthening Supply Chains, But Opposes Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

Aug 13, 2021

Despite the fact that the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate Kathy Barnette cites supply chain issues and “addressing freight costs and material shortages” as among her top policy priorities — Barnette, like the rest of the GOP primary field, opposes the bipartisan infrastructure deal passed this week in the Senate.

As highlighted by the Philadelphia Inquirer, each of Pennsylvania’s top Republican candidates running for U.S. Senate in 2022 opposes the bipartisan deal that is set to send billions of dollars to the state for expanding broadband coverage, investing in communities, and rebuilding crumbling roads and broken bridges. 

The opposition from Pennsylvania Republican Senate candidates comes despite the bipartisan deal’s clear, widely-reported benefits for communities across the state:
