Washington, D.C. — Today, President Joe Biden is traveling to Pennsylvania to mark the 50th anniversary of Amtrak. But there’s one topic we’re sure he’ll avoid: his support for banning fracking in Pennsylvania.
Fracking is an integral part of Pennsylvania’s economy, supporting tens of thousands of the state’s jobs. But President Biden and other PA Dem Senate hopefuls, like John Fetterman and Malcolm Kenyatta, are open to banning fracking. According to a recent NRSC national poll, 62% of voters and 65% of independents oppose a ban on fracking while the same number oppose the Democrats’ plan to end fossil fuels by 2050.
No wonder President Joe Biden isn’t planning to discuss fracking with Pennsylvanians.
Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Lizzie Litzow: “President Biden will travel to Pennsylvania today and avoid discussing the issue most important to Pennsylvanians: fracking. That’s because he knows that his support for the Green New Deal, banning fracking and phasing out fossil fuels will hurt the hard-working men and women of Pennsylvania and their families. Together, Biden, Fetterman and Kenyatta are taking Pennsylvanians off the rails.”
