“I’m honored to have the support of some of the most respected Democratic leaders in Pennsylvania. The voters of the 16th district deserve someone who will fight for the middle-class, not Wall Street. When I’m in Congress, I will find the solutions we need to get Washington back on the right track and working for everyday Pennsylvanians,” Hartman said in a release announcing the endorsements.
The list of Democrats includes former Governor Ed Rendell, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, Auditor General Eugene DePasquale, Treasurer Joe Torsella, Congressmen Dwight Evans (D-Philadelphia), Brendan Boyle (D-Philadelphia), Matt Cartwright (D-Lackawanna), and former Senate candidate Katie McGinty.
“Following a notable campaign in 2016, I’m excited to see Christina Hartman back to finish the job she started. As someone with a demonstrated history of finding consensus, I know that Christina will work and speak for the people of PA-16 in Washington, and I’m proud to endorse her candidacy for U.S. Congress,” Cartwright said in the release.
“I’m proud to support her run for Congress in 2018. With her track record of success, we can count on Christina Hartman to show up for the people of PA-16 and to be part of the solution to end Washington gridlock,” Rendell said.
Hartman is running against former Warwick school superintendent John George, nonprofit director Jessica King, and Lancaster city resident Richard Griffiths Smith Jr. in the Democratic primary.
