Dave McCormick Poised to Mount Another Senate Run
Former hedge fund CEO and 2022 Pennsylvania GOP Senate candidate Dave McCormick continues to signal he’s seriously considering another Senate run in 2024, this time against three-term Democratic Sen. Bob Casey. Now he’s getting encouragement from other elected Republicans.
“He’s an outstanding person. He was a great campaigner,” GOP Rep. Dan Meuser of Pennsylvania said in a brief interview in the U.S. Capitol last week. “He’s just tremendous. So a lot of people are encouraging him to run.”
“He’s doing all the right things laying the groundwork for a potential run,” GOP Rep. Lloyd Smucker of Pennsylvania told The Dispatch. If and when he announces, Smucker added, “he’ll be a great candidate.”
McCormick has spent recent weeks glad-handing with influential Republicans in Washington, D.C., sitting for interviews to promote his new book, and launching a new political action committee aimed at helping the Pennsylvania GOP close Democrats’ mail-in voting gap and boosting Republican candidates for state office. Later this week, he’ll be a featured speaker at the conservative Pennsylvania Leadership Conference in Harrisburg alongside Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway.
