SCRANTON, PA – Pennsylvania Lieutenant Governor hopeful, Teddy Daniels, hopes to capture the magic that New Jersey trucker Edward Durr, did when he ousted longtime Senate President just a few months ago. His down to earth message is one for the times and definitely captures the pulse of his home state. No wonder he is the current frontrunner.
Pennsylvania was a major battleground state the past two election cycles, going Republican in 2016, but back to Democrat in 2020. The biggest shock was on election night, Donald Trump was up hundreds of thousands votes, but the next morning, the lead had flipped. Some blamed Dominion machines, others cited the mail-in voting security issues.
Teddy is addressing those concerns and it is part of his platform. But first he analyzes the root of the problem, uncovering that the GOP was prepared to lose and did very little to fight for what’s right, even when faced with obvious evidence.
“Number one, the election was stolen in Pennsylvania, it was stolen. And the PA GOP enabled it. They sat back, they didn’t do anything, they didn’t stand up and fight. They didn’t have anybody at the polls. I just read that the GOP, in the language they put in their slate of electors that went to DC, said they would only challenge it if Trump were to be successful in a lawsuit. And a GOP boss came out and said in the paper now, this has just been uncovered a year later. Well, [they] didn’t want to get in the way of the Biden electors. And I’m thinking to myself, you bunch of [cowards].”

Teddy finds that it was the mail-in voting that opened things up to fraud and cheating. He cites that the original bill was fine, until the Democrats manipulated the bill to remove safeguards.
“There was actually a bill that was signed in, that allowed mail-in voting. Now with that mail-in voting, it was in there that you still had to have photo ID. There were still signature verification processes in place. The Democrat governor, the Democrat Secretary of State, and the Democrats in the [state] Supreme Court, unconstitutionally bastardized the whole bill, to allow, non-verified signatures, to not pay attention to postmarks, to not have ID and to count ballots three days after the election, or accept them three days after the election.”
So what are the solutions, Teddy proposes? Go back to tradition and get rid of these questionable machines and beef up verification points.
“Number one, we’re going to get rid of all of the Dominion voting machines, right, wrong or indifferent. We’re going back to paper ballots. We’re going back to IDs and we’re going back to signature verification. Now, I see the Democrats already saying these are voter suppression laws. They’ve been doing this now, for over a year. I have yet to see one person [in real life] say that their right to vote is being suppressed. That’s their narrative, voter suppression laws, Republicans are denying people the right to vote. Who are we denying the right to vote? Show an ID, verify your signature. You need an ID to buy smokes, alcohol, drive a car, get on the bus, lease a place, buy a place. You mean to tell me that there are people out there that vote that don’t have IDs for anything else in their lives? And I challenge them every day. Parade one person on CNN, on MSNBC, on CBS. Show me that one person who’s having their right to vote being suppressed. And they can’t do it.”
Fighting the Republican Party is key and Teddy isn’t afraid to take on his own establishment as he went after the pay-to-play aspect of political parties. He chooses to bypass the party and go straight to the people.
“The problem and I can speak on behalf of my experiences with the Republican Party, is I do not fit their mold of what they feel a candidate should be. I fire at the party every chance I get. I’ve never seen a place in history where there was such a big disconnect between the party and the people., I’m not a pay to play guy. And the Pennsylvania GOP is pay to play. They have these caucuses now: the central caucus northeast, southeast, northwest, southwest in the state where you have to give a three minute speech in front of the chosen committee members in that area. Then they all cast a vote to see if you’re worthy of being their endorsed candidate. I came right out and said, ‘I don’t want your endorsement. I’m not a backroom, greasy, side deal type of guy. I don’t have corporate donors. All of my money that I brought in, and I brought in a big chunk of money, 98% of my donors are $200 and under.
I actually just got an email today that at their big state convention, there’s going to be a lieutenant governor’s forum, and the qualifications to be eligible to participate in the Lieutenant Governor’s forum are: one, you have to be registered as a candidate through the Department of State, check. Two, you have to be a sponsor of the winter meeting. Okay, to be eligible. Three, you need 10 letters from state committee people to be eligible to be part of this forum. Tell me that you’re paying to play without telling me you’re pay to play. Oh, let’s see. You can be part of this forum but you have to sponsor it. sir. I haven’t given them $1. They are the reason we are where we are today in this country because they don’t have a backbone. They don’t have a spine. They’re afraid to stand up. Because it’s never politically safe.”
Teddy Daniels is definitely not playing it safe and is taking on the important problems with real solutions and straight talk.
