PA-2: Philly FOP Endorses Evans

Dwight EvansFebruary turned out to be a great month for State Rep. Dwight Evans’ campaign for U.S. Congress.

Evans started out the month by nabbing Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney’s endorsement to defeat embattled congressman Chaka Fattah in April’s Democratic primary.

Last Thursday, Evans picked up Gov. Tom Wolf’s support, and now he is wrapping up the month with an endorsement from the Philadelphia Fraternal Order of Police on Leap Day.

Evans said he was “truly honored” to receive the endorsement of the 14,000 officer-strong group and will look to improve relations between communities and police.

“We ask much from the men and women who patrol our streets keeping us safe and I have always been an advocate for strengthening the relationship between the police and the communities that they serve,” Evans said. “Together we can work to transform our neighborhoods where families and businesses can thrive and grow.”

Evans, who took office in 1981, also gained State Rep. Brian Sims’ endorsement in February, after Sims dropped out of the race.

11-term U.S. Representative Fattah is facing 29 federal charges, including bribery and racketeering. A January PPP Poll showed Evans with 37% support, while Fattah could only manage 21%.

Pennsylvania’s 2nd Congressional District contains sections of Philadelphia and suburbs of Montgomery County.
