Allyson Schwartz locked down support in another corner of her southeast Pa. political base Thursday, winning the endorsements of a group of high-profile Bucks County Democratic leaders.
County Commissioner Diane Ellis-Marseglia along with State Reps. Tina Davis, John Galloway and Steve Santarsiero were among those backing the Congresswoman in her campaign for Governor.
“Not only will Allyson Schwartz beat Tom Corbett in November, she’ll be a different kind of governor who will make record investments in public education and universal pre-kindergarten for four-year olds,” said Santarsiero in the statement.
“I am proud to support Allyson. As the only woman in the Congressional delegation, Allyson has broken down barriers and will take on the stale politics in Harrisburg,” said Ellis-Marseglia.
Jordan Yeager, an attorney and Secretary of the Southeast Caucus of Democratic State Committee also endorsed Schwartz.
In response to the new support, Schwartz stated, “Every day our campaign continues to gain momentum because Pennsylvanians are ready for a different kind of leader in Harrisburg, and I’m looking forward to working with people in every part of the state to make Pennsylvania great again.”
Schwartz has also gained the endorsement of Philadelphia Democratic Party Chairman Rep. Bob Brady and the Philadelphia City Democratic Committee among numerous others.
Schwartz is running in the Democratic primary for Pennsylvania governor against businessman Tom Wolf, former PA DEP Secretaries John Hanger and Katie McGinty, State Treasurer Rob McCord, pastor Max Myers and Lebanon County Commissioner Jo Ellen Litz.
