February 29th, 2016 – Congressman Tom Marino (PA-10) became the first Pennsylvania Congressional House member to endorse Donald Trump for President:

“For the past 10 months, I have listened to political pundits and inside the beltway politicians say that Donald Trump is not a serious candidate, cannot win the Republican nomination and cannot win the Presidency. However, Mr. Trump has defied the odds at every turn. It is time that we start listening to what the people want and that is a President Donald Trump. I am proud to give Mr. Trump my full endorsement and support today.

In particular, Mr. Trump is right about the desperate need to address illegal immigration and fight to keep our country safe. For far too long, President Obama has used his executive action powers to circumvent Congress and institute dangerous policies that both cripple our national security and economy.

I have never seen such excitement and enthusiasm around a candidate in my lifetime. He is able to attract new voters from across the spectrum and that is exactly what our party and country needs. It is time that we put a strong leader in the White House and I believe Donald Trump is the right man for the job.

It is time for us to come together and Make America Great Again!”
