CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ)– Just weeks from the May primary, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Carla Sands made a stop in Sidman on Wednesday evening.

“We need a conservative in the senate, we don’t want another weak republican who’s going to go along to get along, it’s now or never, and so we’re telling conservatives to take a look at our campaign.”
