Volunteers Needed
We would love for you to come and volunteer!
  • Phone banking

  • Door to door with our representatives
PA GOP is starting to knock on doors for the Toomey and Trump campaigns. It is a great way to get involved this summer. Recent polling has shown a tight race in Pennsylvania; we can be the tipping point.
