"Force Multiplier was a critical part of my campaign in 2020, and I am so excited to have your support again. Never before have I had to start my campaign so early after the last election, but Republicans are wasting no time and have already gone on the offensive. They are eager to take back the House majority, and see their path going through my district.

 

My 2020 multi-millionaire opponent has already launched her campaign against me, and a right wing Super PAC has started running a digital, billboard, and phone call ad campaign against me in my district. We need to have a strong first fundraising quarter so that we don't start this race from behind.

 

Your early support is a key part of my ability to communicate my message to voters, combat Republicans' attacks, and build a strong team and campaign infrastructure to develop and execute a winning strategy. With redistricting happening later this year and a tough race ahead, we don't have any time to waste." 

EXPERIENCE

As a child of an Air Force officer, Wild lived overseas and in several states, but Lehigh Valley has been home since she graduated from law school. After building a law practice and serving as the first female Solicitor of Allentown PA, she was elected to the US House in 2018, in a district redrawn because of gerrymandering. She was recognized as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer from 2010 to 2017.

 

Wild has served on the Board of Directors of the Civic Theatre of Allentown, the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley, the Program for Women & Families, and Second Harvest Food Bank.

 

WILD ON THE ISSUES

"Happy birthday, FDR! Thank you for creating Social Security so Americans could retire with dignity and security. For your birthday, we’ve introduced the #SocialSecurity 2100 act to strengthen and expand Social Security - and make it financially secure for generations to come." (twitter.com)

 

“My campaign is all about Families, and that’s why my top priorities in Congress will be: (1) establishing a Medicare for all system … (2) protecting Social Security at all costs…and (3) implementing campaign finance reform to get dark money out of politics. When more revenue is needed to make these priorities a reality, I support increasing taxes on the highest income earners and reducing defense spending.” (votesmart.org)

“The Affordable Care Act can be improved upon, but that in no way includes dismantling or repealing it. It was a great start that I believe should set us on a course toward a Medicare for all-type program.” (votesmart.org)

“I am an EMILY's List-endorsed candidate and am wholeheartedly pro-choice. “(votesmart.org)

 

“I would like to see us move toward publicly funded elections that completely remove "dark" and corporate money from our political process.” (votesmart.org)

“I would support reinstating the 1994 assault weapons ban, banning "bump stocks," raising the eligible age for gun purchases, and creating a universal background checks, among other measures.” (votesmart.org)

 

"Throughout the past several weeks, I've participated in community discussions and peaceful demonstrations to address the injustice and inequity experienced by Black Americans … And we have to deliver -- our country deserves no less and George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others deserve no less. Today, our vote to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act codifies their movement and takes a long-needed legislative step toward meaningful reform." (votesmart.org)

"Impossible choices between job & family are hurting the economy. #PaidLeave through the #FAMILYAct means moms & dads aren’t forced to leave the labor force to care for their families/health - reducing turnover for employers & making workplaces more equitable and family friendly." (twitter.com)

 

"My focus is on our men and women in uniform serving across the Middle East and around the globe. Let us honor their extraordinary sacrifices by … remembering always the incalculable costs of war for them and their families." votesmart.org)

"For the past 6 months, I have worked to secure a North American trade agreement that puts our workers, our businesses, and our families first," Wild said. "When I led 27 of my colleagues in a letter to U.S. Trade Representative Lighthizer, I made renegotiation of provisions that would have locked in high drug costs and harmed our workers my priority and demanded these issues be taken seriously. Now, the American people have won. This deal can't be added to the pile of bills collecting dust on the Senate Majority Leader's desk -- it deserves to be taken up and passed swiftly by the Senate."

POLITICS IN PENNSYLVANIA

In the current 117th Congress, Susan sponsored H.R. 1530, the bill passed in March 2021 to strengthen the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995, a key component of S.1, the For the People Act.

 

Though PA-07 has tended more towards Democrats recently, Susan’s margin of only 4.3% over her opponent means she needs our support.
