Republican congressional candidate Teddy Daniels is going after his likely Democrat opponent after a hit by CNN tried to paint Daniels as some sort of extreme radical. Daniels still has to win his upcoming primary, but the field seems all but clear, and he will likely be the nominee for his district in Pennsylvania.
The soon-to-be hotly contested district could be any man’s race as CNN portrays, and they seem to want to try to hurt Daniels by painting current Rep. Matt Cartwright in a good light, and Daniels in a bad light.
In the article, CNN links to a tweet showing that Daniels was in D.C. on January 6th. Of course, Daniels wasn’t one of the people who trespassed though, but the left likes to blur the lines on that narrative.
January 6th is one of the things the left has used for many months to try to delegitimize people like Donald Trump and his followers. In the long CNN piece, Daniels was mentioned in part:
Cartwright, however, has been a top target for Republicans for years — the party eager to seize on the rightward lean of the district to gain another seat in House. And the congressman already has a Republican opponent for the midterms: Teddy Daniels, a far-right congressional hopeful who said he was close to the US Capitol during the January 6 insurrection and announced his campaign with a video that puts him fully in line with Trump’s messaging.”I am here,” he wrote in a tweet along with the video from the Capitol on January 6. “God bless our patriots.”
Daniels posted the articles, realizing how much he is being noticed, and called out his likely opponent, saying:
“#CandyAssCartwright & CNN are scared to death. I would be too if I aligned myself with @JoeBiden and his disastrous policies. He also isn’t a fan of my #AuditPA shirts. Buckle up & pack a lunch Matt! #AMERICAFIRST“
