PITTSBURGH, PA -- NOTE: Over the next 39 days, the Raja campaign will be highlighting the trouble with Rich Fitzgerald's record and actions.
Questions for Rich:
1. Does supporting a car rental tax help bring jobs to our county?
2. 2. How does the Car Rental Tax help bring convention and visitors to our region?

"This is another example of the way Rich thinks about government. We have an underutilized airport; an underutilized convention center and these types of taxes are counterproductive.
