McGinty spoke at the Penn State agriculture event about many of her campaign platforms – including the need to increase funding for public universities like Penn State.
She said, “Let’s get real – we were this close to getting a public college being public in name only. Ten percent of the cost of college coming from public support? That’s a burden on families and students, we need to invest in public colleges and universities and I will fight for those dollars.”
McGinty also spoke against privatizing social security and supported Pennsylvania’s agricultural economy. She currently has a small lead against incumbent Republican Senator Pat Toomey, according to a recent poll conducted by Quinnipiac.
