Let’s meet

Chris Sainato

Former State Rep,
Pennsylvania House District 9

Democrat

Despite a consistently anti-choice voting record, we'd prefer Chris to win this seat over his opponent, due to his vote against SB 106.

The proof:

Chris sponsored a bill that would increase regulation to hold abortion centers to the inappropriately high standards of an ambulatory surgical center.
