“The conservative group American Principles Project launched a new radio ad and website targeting” state Sen. Scott Wagner (R) for his support for a “bill that allows transgender students to use bathrooms that correspond with the gender identity. ‘[SB974] is a piece of legislation that incredibly allows a boy to shower with your daughter at school,’ the voice over says in the ad.

“The website, www.stopscottwagner.com, continues to push against Wagner and the bill, directly comparing Wagner to” Gov. Tom Wolf (D) “for his support of the bill. On the website, APP claims the bill would hurt children, women, sexual abuse survivors, and religious individuals.”

Wagner’s campaign spokesman Andrew Romeo: “This ad is nothing more than a misrepresentation of Scott’s record. This bill doesn’t address bathrooms, and Senator Wagner would oppose any bill that does what the American Principal Project alleges.” (PoliticsPA)

HOLD THE LINE. Gov. Tom Wolf (D) “has vowed to veto” “some of the strictest abortion restrictions in the country. Senate Bill 3 would ban abortions after 20 weeks — four weeks earlier than state law currently allows.” (WHYY)
