Four SEPA Dems Back Warren

On Friday, state Sen. Katie Muth (D-Montgomery), state Reps. Danielle Friel-Otten (D-Chester), Leanne Krueger (D-Delaware), and Democratic Philadelphia City Councilmember-elect Jamie Gauthier announced their presidential endorsement for Warren. 

Muth lauded Warren in a tweet as a “fighter, truth-teller, problem-solver” and the “moral leader America needs.”

Muth previously received recognition from Warren in a tweet during the summer for a viral video of the Montgomery County Senator speaking on the state Senate floor about general assistance funding.  

Friel-Otten said in her endorsement tweet on Friday morning that Warren “truly understands what it’s like to juggle family, careers, putting food on the table and trying to save just a little bit for the future – all at the same time.” 

Krueger said in her endorsement tweet that Warren has a plan to “rebuild the middle class,” as the reason she’s pledging her support to her.  

Gauthier, who just notched a spot on Philadelphia’s City Council this week, said she was proud to “join women across the country” in issuing her endorsement for Warren in her effort to become the nation’s first woman president.

While former Vice President Joe Biden has led in various Pennsylvania Democratic primary polls and dominated in the endorsement category, specifically in the northeast,  Warren is building up significant endorsements in the southeast. 

In October, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner became the first high profile elected officials in the state to endorse Warren. 

The counties that these local elected officials that endorsed Warren represent are an area where Democrats have been experiencing significant growth. 

During the 2016 election, all four counties that these local elected officials hail from supported Sec. Hillary Clinton by wide margins, although the momentum has continued beyond this election with historic victories in various countywide races last Tuesday

The former Vice President and Scranton native has remained at the top of various Pennsylvania Democratic primary polls, while Warren is in second place. The Real Clear Politics average shows Biden leading with 25%, followed by Warren at 14.3%, then Sen. Bernie Sanders polling at 10.7%, and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg in fourth place with 6.7%.
