Right-Wing Republican Rick Saccone Announces 2018 Senate Bid | Intro by Right-Wing Christian Org President
On Monday, February 27, 2017, right-wing Republican Representative Rick Saccone announced his campaign to challenge PA’s Democratic Senator Bob Casey in the 2018 midterm elections. Saccone represents the 39th district in Western PA, which includes parts of Allegheny and Washington Counties. Saccone is perhaps best known for introducing and passing a bill declaring 2012 the “Year of the Bible.” Saccone was elected to the PA house as part of the Tea Party sweep of the 2010 midterm elections.
Saccone is introduced by Tim Barton, the President and COO of WallBuilders - a right-wing Christian organization founded by his father, David Barton. Here’s how Americans United for the Separation of Church and State describes WallBuilders:
“WallBuilders was founded by David Barton, a former Christian school teacher in Texas who has carved out a lucrative niche for himself by promoting the idea that the United States was founded to be a “Christian nation.”
Named by Time magazine as one of the most 25 influential evangelicals, Barton uses WallBuilders, which has both for-profit and non-profit arms, to attack mainstream history, insisting that church-state separation was not the intention of our Founders.”
Saccone’s announcement was held in the PA Capitol rotunda. This audio was recorded by Sean Kitchen of Raging Chicken Press.
