Koplinski for LG Scores 100+ Endorsements

Brad KoplinskiThe first endorsements in the Democratic primary for Lieutenant Governor are in. Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski rolled out a list of more than 100 supporters Thursday.

“Brad has been a leader for our municipalities and making sure they get a fair shake from the Commonwealth,” said Det Ansinn, President of Doylestown Borough Council. “He will do an even better job doing that as Lieutenant Governor.”

They range from County Commissioners to Mayors, from county party chairs to state committee members, and represent 40 counties.

“I appreciate the support of all of these outstanding Democratic leaders,” Koplinski said. “Our campaign is resonating throughout the entire Commonwealth and I know we will continue to build strength as the campaign progresses.”

The race for LG has two declared candidates: Koplinski and Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith.

State Sen. Larry Farnese (D-Phila) Wednesday floated his interest in a bid. He joined former Congressman Mark Critz (D-Cambria), Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli, state Rep. Brandon Neuman (D-Washington), and state Sen. John Wozniak (D-Cambria).
