Keegan Gibson reports on Allyson Schwartz’s opening salvo of the 2014 shadow campaign:
“Governor Christie said today, and I’m going to quote him, that expanding Medicaid is, quote, ‘the smart thing to do for our fiscal and public health,’” she said. “We’re calling on Governor Corbett to do the smart thing.”
The Montgomery County Congresswoman, who is actively pursuing a bid for Governor in 2014, took a soft tone toward her prospective rival.
“Hopefully he’ll see the way forward to making this work,” she said, noting that Christie’s decision gives Corbett political cover. Other Republicans governors have also recently bought into the program.
“We want to keep up the drum beat and hopefully he’ll change his mind.”
