Joyce announces bid for re-election


ALTOONA—Congressman John Joyce, M.D. (R-PA), in a prepared statement, announced his intention to seek re-election in the 13th Congressional District of Pennsylvania.

“In light of the decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, I am announcing that I will run for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania’s newly-drawn 13th Congressional District, which includes my home of Blair County and nearly 75% of my current constituents in Pennsylvania’s 13th Congressional District.

“From day one in office, I have worked to defend life, our second amendment rights, our homeland security, and our conservative Pennsylvania values in Washington.

“We cannot let up in the fight to protect our communities from the failed socialist policies of Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and radical Democrats in Congress.  Now, more than ever, we must redouble our commitment to win a Republican majority in the House and put the values of American families first.

“While our district lines may have changed, my priorities remain the same: strengthening our healthcare workforce, securing our borders, delivering the best constituent services, and ending the oppressive top-down mandates and regulations that stifle Pennsylvania parents, families, and job creators. I will always defend our conservative values, and I look forward to continuing my work in Congress to strengthen our communities and our Commonwealth.”

“This district is my home. I was born and raised here – my wife Alice and I raised our family and practiced medicine for over 25 years treating patients and families here in South Central Pennsylvania.

“I will work to faithfully represent each and every constituent I am elected and honored to serve.”
