Trump-endorsed Pennsylvania Republican gubernatorial candidate, Doug Mastriano is seeking divine intervention as his campaign struggles to gather momentum heading into the final stretch of the midterm election cycle.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mastriano’s campaign on Wednesday, posted a photo on Facebook of two hands under the words “40 days of fasting & prayer” starting Thursday Sept 29 through Election day on Nov. 8.
“Interceding for our elections, our state, and our nation,” the post said, along with a verse from the Book of Isaiah.
Mastriano’s post seeking divine intervention comes as he is struggling in the polls, trailing his Democratic opponent Attorney General Josh Shapiro by double digits. Shapiro is also spending millions to attack Mastriano’s record on abortion, a top issue for voters this election cycle, but Mastriano is unable to respond because his campaign is running low on cash. In fact, Mastriano hasn’t run or booked any TV ads since May. Despite this, he won’t commit to a debate or do interviews.
It also does not appear that anyone is coming to help out Mastriano’s struggling campaign. Top Republicans feared he had turn out to be the disaster they thought he would be and the Republican Governors Association believe the Pennsylvania gubernatorial race is a “lost cause.”
