PA State Rep. Rick Saccone tweeted this announcement on Thursday:
We will have our big kickoff rally in the capitol rotunda 27 feb 11am. David Barton will intro me. So blessed. Come join us in hburg.

As a GOP state representative, Saccone sponsored a resolution proclaiming 2012 as The Year of the Bible in PA. He is also behind the effort to place the motto In God We Trust on display in PA public schools.
Saccone has an earned PhD from University of Pittsburgh. I wonder how he would feel about Barton if he knew about Barton’s attempt to pass off an honorary degree from a non-accredited diploma mill as an earned doctorate.
Saccone is seeking the GOP nomination to take on Sen. Bob Casey in 2018.
