This morning, Senator Bob Casey endorsed Katie McGinty.
“I’m grateful to have the chance to endorse Katie McGinty today,” Casey stated in a conference call this morning. “I’m proud to endorse her candidacy.”
McGinty was even more grateful to received the Senator’s support as it represents a clean sweep of major PA Democratic figures.
“I can’t think of someone I would be more honored to stand with,” McGinty said.
The Senator was asked why he had waited longer than others to make a choice in this campaign.
“This race, like a lot of races, is one where people are just starting to pay attention,” he responded. “I wanted to make this decision during the time frame when people are first starting to figure out how they’re going to vote.
Sen. Casey went on to acknowledge that he called both of McGinty’s opponents, former Congressman Joe Sestak and Braddock Mayor John Fetterman, last night to give them a heads up about today’s announcement. Finally, he asserted that this move was not in spite of anyone else but rather an affirmation of McGinty.
“You make the decision based on the record of the individual, what the candidate stands for and what they would do if elected. This is a 100% verification of Katie and her record.”
