“I’m proud to give Senator John Sabatina my endorsement,” Abraham stated. “I have been fighting against injustice my entire career so I know what it takes. Senator Sabatina has shown time and again that he has the courage and commitment to stand up for all Pennsylvanians. He has a proven track record and I’m glad he’s our man in Harrisburg.”
“I want to thank District Attorney Abraham for her endorsement, support, and trust,” Sen. Sabatina responded. “She’s a true public servant and I’m proud to say she was also a mentor to me. I learned so much about public service and fighting injustice from her.”
