Today my friend Senator John Yudichak became a registered Independent and will join the Senate Republican Caucus. I started working with John when we were both serving in the PA House. He is an outstanding legislator who cares deeply about his constituents. Like John, I believe independent-minded legislators working in a bipartisan manner is the best way to create a better future for our state and our country. I welcome John to our Caucus and look forward to continuing to work with him on issues important to Pennsylvania’s families.
