DePasquale Unveils Mega-List of Endorsements for Auditor

By Keegan Gibson, Managing Editor

Eugene DePasquale (D-York) is well on his way to becoming the consensus Democratic candidate for Auditor General.

His campaign rolled out a massive list of endorsements on Tuesday, including congressmen, county officials, labor groups and the majority of his colleagues in the Pa. House.

“I have known Eugene for many years both on the personal level and as a public official,” said Pa. Senate Minority Leader Jay Costa (D-Allegheny) in a statement.  “He is thoughtful, resourceful and dedicated. He is fiercely loyal to his constituents and is well regarded for being a tough, ferocious fighter for those in need.”

“I am honored to have the support of so many great Pennsylvanians,” said DePasquale. “They share my belief that the next Auditor General needs to hold Governor Corbett accountable, and believe that I am the strongest candidate for that critical task.”

The list includes two would-be contenders for the office: Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato, who recently took a position with Highmark; and former Philadelphia City Controller Jonathen Saidel.

On the Republican side, Chester County Treasurer Ann Duke has announced, and Pa. Rep. Paul John Maher (R-Allegheny) is also reportedly in the race. MSNBC pundit and school choice advocate Joe Watkins is also considering a bid.

The sheer chore of copying, pasting and formatting the list has compelled us simply to embed the press release, below.

His campaign says even more are coming soon from Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and the Lehigh Valley – delayed so that they can be announced in person.
