Pennsylvania’s 8th (PA - 08)

Updated: October 1, 2022


Jim Bognet is a shady former Washington lobbying executive who has written policies that will hurt working families while being supported by big money special interests.


Voters in the Wilkes Barre/Scranton market need to watch TV ads, voters district-wide need to see digital ads, and voters district-wide who are OTT subscribers need to see ads about: 

  • In Pennsylvania, there’s now a real chance that all abortions could become illegal, and that women who get abortions could be charged with murder. Bognet has pledged to vote for an extreme nationwide abortion ban to criminalize all abortions, with no exceptions for rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is at risk. 
  • Bognet called the overturning of Roe v. Wade an “amazing day.”
