“ Gaydos, the Republican, said her jump into politics was based more on a frustration with the status quo in Harrisburg. She said more women than ever are financially independent so they are able to run and they have grown up in a society in which they have more options than ever, including running for public office.

“Great people are going to do great things regardless of gender,” Gaydos said.

 We ran a very positive race,” she said. “I think we connected dots from what I’ve done to what I will do.”

Gaydos said she learned that “a party message was less important than a constituent message.” She said that approach would continue into the general election as she courts Democrats and Republicans.


“Ultimately, what I heard was that people are less interested in political parties these days,” Gaydos said, “and they are more interested in the person and what they’re going to do.”

"As a small business owner, I vote based on who has a record of small business creation and support. Gaydos has a substantial record of small business advocation and creation. We need politicians in Harrisburg who champion the rights of small businesses and who will work to reduce the taxation burden placed on us by liberal policies. She has my vote on May 15."

“'People are being flooded by information and they’re confused,' she [Gaydos] said. 'People want to see both parties talk to each other again. People want to see government work. I don’t think they want to see career politicians.'"

“I’m a conservative, tried and true. And, I have been all of my life,” Gaydos said in a statement. “I’m pro-life, pro-growth and pro-business. And, I am an avid defender of the Constitution. I believe in the Second Amendment and, of course, the First Amendment guaranteeing our right to free speech.”

"Gaydos said she was motivated by the feeling that 'there’s a tremendous lack of business acumen' among elected officials."

“We need to reach across the aisle and we don’t see enough of that. There’s too much infighting. ... We're all Pennsylvanians.”

“'It’s wonderful to see someone with business experience, particularly with startups and the entrepreneurial side of the business sector,' said Oliver. 'I think that that attitude and to represent the feelings of those involved in making Pennsylvania a much stronger pro-business climate state.'” 

“'The way I will be running is on issues,' said Gaydos. 'Because I think everyone is tired of rhetoric, I think everyone is tired of nastiness, I think the people are tired of finger-pointing and blaming. I’m all about fixing things, and sometimes you just have to do it. And that’s what I’m all about, is just going in there and finding solutions to problems.'"
