PRESS RELEASE: FRI JAN 3, 2020: Meehan Responds to Fitzpatrick Attack Ad: “Thanks, buddy!”

Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District Candidate Andy Meehan issued the following statement on FRI JAN 3, 2020:

“On Thursday, January 2, 2020, Brian Fitzpatrick for Congress launched an attack ad against me to criticize me for, among other things, my enjoyment of hiking and fishing. Clearly, these are the substantive matters that Republicans in PA District 01 deeply care about.

And while my campaign is working hard to raise money here in PA-01, I’m grateful to Congressman Fitzpatrick for spending some of the million dollars he’s raised from DC special interests to produce this ad and boost my name recognition.

“However, there are some errors in this ad that I must correct.

1) Brian Fitzpatrick, not Andy Meehan, is Nancy Pelosi’s favorite Republican. According to the liberal group Americans for Democratic Action, Fitzpatrick votes with Nancy Pelosi more than any other Republican in Congress. https://adaction.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/2018.pdf

2) Brian Fitzpatrick accuses me of “attacking Republicans” when he has voted to condemn our Republican President Donald Trump again and again. Fitzpatrick refused to vote for Donald Trump in 2016.  Fitzpatrick refused to commit to supporting Donald Trump in 2020 in a recent NBC news interview. Perhaps worst of all, Brian Fitzpatrick voted with Nancy Pelosi, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to label President Trump a “racist” in July 2019. http://levittownnow.com/2019/07/16/congressman-fitzpatrick-votes-to-condemn-presidents-controversial-tweets

3) Brian Fitzpatrick accuses me of hurting the PA-01 Republican Party in 2019. But on Election Day, Andy Meehan was working the polls all day on behalf of Republican candidates right here in Bucks County while Brian Fitzpatrick was posing for photo ops at unrelated events. Under the “leadership” of Brian Fitzpatrick, the Republican Party in Bucks County and PA-01 has suffered the worst election losses in 30 years, while Brian Fitzpatrick has remained silent. https://www.buckscountycouriertimes.com/news/20191105/democrats-takes-control-of-bucks-county-government

“Brian Fitzpatrick is scared of my grassroots, conservative campaign because I’m speaking the truth about his support for taking away gun rights, for open borders and amnesty, for letting biological men invade women-only spaces and sports, and for raising taxes. He accuses me of being a disloyal Republican, but the only reason I’m in this race is because of Brian Fitzpatrick’s disloyalty to Republican values, voters, and our President.  Fitzpatrick launched this attack on the same day he refused an invitation from the Lower Makefield/Yardley Republican Committee because I was also invited.

“Brian: It’s time to stop hiding behind your campaign staff and attack ads and have a real debate.”


Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick has given Republicans countless reasons to vote against him in favor of a real conservative, pro-Trump candidate like Andy Meehan.  Below are just a sample of over 200 FITZWATCH items. Download the full FITZWATCH document here.

11/7/2019 CONGRESSMAN BRIAN FITZPATRICK SILENT AFTER HISTORIC ELECTION LOSSES FOR BUCKS COUNTY REPUBLICAN PARTY; DEFEATS IN SUBURBAN PHILADELPHIA COUNTIES WEAKEN TRUMP PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN IN PENNSYLVANIA WITH HISTORIC SHIFT TO DEMOCRATS The GOP should be most concerned about what happened in local elections in Chester, Delaware and Bucks County, PA last night, Josh Holmes, one of McConnell’s closest advisers, tweeted. “That is genuinely alarming if you know the voting history.” All three of those counties outside Philadelphia voted for Democratic majorities on their county commissions, the first time ever for Chester and Delaware and the first time in more than 25 years for Bucks. Neighboring Montgomery County, which flipped to Democrats in 2011, delivered another overwhelming 2-to-1 margin of victory for incumbent Democrats. Those four suburban counties are now delivering such big Democratic margins that it becomes tougher for Trump to win the state’s 20 electoral votes. https://www.washingtonpost.com/powerpost/election-results-reassure-house-democrats-as-they-pursue-impeachment-inquiry-of-trump/2019/11/06/c9a1d7ee-ff1f-11e9-8501-2a7123a38c58_story.html
