McCormick Made His Fortune By Investing with China While Selling Out American Workers

PENNSYLVANIA — On National Be a Millionaire Day, the Pennsylvania Democratic Party is recognizing Connecticut resident and mega-millionaire David McCormick, who is struggling to connect with Pennsylvanians because of his out-of-touch record of investing with China, selling out American workers, and supporting policies that benefit wealthy corporations at the cost of working class Pennsylvanians.

Pennsylvania Democratic Party spokesperson TaNisha Cameron issued the following statement:

“Prominent Connecticut mega-millionaire David McCormick’s get rich quick tricks including laying off Pennsylvania workers, investing in Chinese military companies, and skimping on paying his fair share of taxes are the perfect playbook for anyone aspiring to make their millions by selling out American workers. And if you’re ever worried about gas prices affecting your bottom line, don’t fret — McCormick’s wife is on the board of Exxon!”

What They’re Saying About McCormick’s Out of Touch Record:

KDKA Radio:

  • Host Natalie Bencivenga: The David McCormick issue, who owns homes worth millions of dollars and he’s not even here. I also found this really interesting story on Penn Capital-Star […] ‘property taxes paid late twice on McCormick’s Pittsburgh house, records show.’ So, the guy isn’t even here, probably forgot he had this property, doesn’t even pay his taxes, and yet we’re supposed to take him seriously? 

6ABC “Inside Story”:

  • Panelist Sam Katz: That won’t be a hard characteristic to tag [McCormick] with. He is the head of a hedge fund. He lives in Connecticut. […] I think he’s out of touch. […] The Republican Party in Pennsylvania can’t find a Pennsylvanian to run for the United States Senate?

Bulwark Podcast:

  • Josh Barro: …Dave McCormick some voter was complaining to him about gas prices in a diner or something. He goes, ‘Oh, yeah, my wife’s on the board of Exxon,’ which is literally true. He’s like the opposite of relatable and he lives in Westport, Connecticut. 

  • Tim Miller: He also pretended to be a farmer.
