Art Halverson, a retired U.S. Coast Guard captain from Bedford County says he is forming an exploratory committee to challenge Shuster. Halverson made his comments Monday while addressing more than 75 people at the Blair County Tea Party’s annual Tax Day Rally in Hollidaysburg.
Halverson tells WRTA News that Shuster is not a true conservative – and he’s part of all that’s wrong in Washington.
Halverson – a real estate investor – says faith, family and free enterprise will be the cornerstone of his campaign if he decides to run. Tea Party supporters use the event each year to promote low taxation, limited government and responsible representation.
