Giuliani Campaign Press Release - Pennsylvania Congressmen Endorse Rudy Giuliani for President

July 30, 2007

The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee today announced that Representatives Phil English and Jim Gerlach, of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, have endorsed Rudy Giuliani for President of the United States.

"Rudy Giuliani possesses the strong, proven leadership that our next President will need in order to build a coalition to lead our country forward," said English, who represents the state's 3rd District. "Mayor Giuliani has already held one of the toughest elected executive positions in America as New York City's Mayor, where he proved he is a real fiscal conservative."

Gerlach, of Pennsylvania's Sixth District, said: "Rudy Giuliani is the right man, at the right time to be our next President. He has unparalleled experience as a chief executive, having cut taxes 23 times while mayor and made government more efficient and responsive to its citizens. Mayor Giuliani holds an optimistic vision for our country, and I am proud to support his candidacy."

Reps. English and Gerlach join Rep. Charlie Dent, of Pennsylvania's 15th District, who endorsed Mayor Giuliani in February.
