Ever since the Braddock Mayor overperformed his polls during last April’s primary, garnering twenty percent in his contest with Katie McGinty and Joe Sestak, political observers have wondered what the future holds for Fetterman.
Fetterman made his first move since the primary this week when he announced his endorsement of six candidates. While four of the six are in PA, he is also throwing his lot behind congressional hopefuls Lucy Flores and Tim Canova of Nevada and Florida respectively.
The plan appears to be to build up potential allies of the progressive Mayor into what he calls his “FetterTeam”.
Democratic nominee for Attorney General Josh Shapiro leads the PA class while congressional candidates Steve Santarsiero, Erin McClelland and Christina Hartman also got the nod.
If the outsider can make a difference for any of these nominees during the campaign it would significantly aid his efforts in becoming a major liberal force in the Keystone State.
