What an excellent way to honor Womenโ€™s History Month in Pennsylvania!

The portrait unveiling ceremony commemorating Catherine Baker Knoll, Pennsylvaniaโ€™s first female lieutenant governor, held at our state capitol building.

Shapiro math doesnโ€™t add up. ๐Ÿค”โœ๐Ÿป

When Gov. Shapiro says he wants to "๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ซ๐™š๐™จ๐™ฉ in PA", he really means ๐™๐˜ผ๐™“ Pennsylvanians.
Today, we recognize Presidents Day and reflect on the effort it takes to guide our country in the right direction. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’™

Originally, the holiday was to honor our first president โ€“ George Washington โ€“ but it has since been expanded.
It just doesnโ€™t add up.

State spending would ๐Ÿ“ˆ by more than $๐Ÿฏ.๐Ÿฎ ๐—•๐—œ๐—Ÿ๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—ข๐—ก under Shapiroโ€™s new budget plan.

The @pasenategop will be working hard to get spending down.

I don't stand for out-of-control spending with no explanation of how we are going to responsibly pay for it. The governorโ€™s annual budget address โ€” with all of the proposed spending and government intrusion on Pennsylvania families โ€” was obviously his audition for being the sweetheart of the Democratic National Committee.

Thank you, Phil!
The crisis at our southern border presents an imminent threat against the U.S.
