Campaign themes


Ostrowski's campaign website listed the following issues:[4]

  • Court reform - Judicial reform
Excerpt: "During this campaign, and on this site, I will discuss how these issues are matters of national importance, and have negatively effected jobs, the economy, healthcare and the overall integrity of our government. When individuals lose access to the courts, we lose the right of self-governance. I will make specific proposals for how to address these issues through the exercise of constitutional congressional powers.
  • Tom Corbett, Penn State and Kids-for-Cash
Excerpt: "There is nothing more troubling to us as Pennsylvanians than the destruction heaped upon our great Commonwealth by the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State University and the kids-for-cash scandal that rocked Luzerne County."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "I applaud the effort to address what has become a matter of national importance. Over 50% of all personal bankruptcies are the result of catastrophic medical bills that ruin families and destroy their futures."
  • Jobs and Economic Growth
Excerpt: "I believe in true free enterprise and believe our innovators and entrepreneurs, who put their personal fortunes on the line and bear all responsibility for their successes and failings should not be burdened with greater taxes and regulations"
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "We need a compassionate immigration policy that does not tear families apart, but we also need firm enforcement, to ensure that people come into our borders legally, with the lesson that the rule of law prevails in America."
  • Labor and Trade
Excerpt: "I believe that the President's jobs bill should be debated and enacted, and that there is no legitimate reason this cannot be done on a bi-partisan basis."

Race background

In early 2013, PoliticsPA and The Hill previewed three Pennsylvania races which showed promise for a competitive primary or potential partisan switch. Of the eighteen total House seats up for election in 2014, Republicans held thirteen.

In the 11th District race, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was looking at Chris Carney as a potential challenger to incumbent Lou Barletta; however, Carney declined to enter the race. Barletta instead faced Democrat Andy Ostrowski in the general election.[5]
