PA-6 Democratic hopeful Lindy Li (who until recently was running in the PA-7 race) unveiled a plethora of endorsements, led by Congressman Bob Brady.
“Lindy’s candidacy shows the depth of our Party’s bench here in Pennsylvania,” Brady stated. “Her pragmatic policy approach and unifying message are refreshing and will be the difference this fall.”
She also secured the support of several other members of Congress, local Democratic party officials and labor unions. A full list is presented below:
Congresswoman Grace Meng (NY-6)
Congressman Mike Honda (CA-17)
Congressman Ted Lieu (CA-33)
Brad Kirsch, Senior Caucus Chair of the PA Democratic Party
Candace Stitzman-Duley, Women’s Caucus Chair of the PA Democratic Party
Jonathan Saidel, former Philadelphia City Controller
Ruth Damsker, Member of the PA Democratic State Committee and former Montgomery County Commissioner
Plumbers Local 690
International Association of Machinists Local 1776
“Rarely have I met a person who so intimately understands the issues of both young and older Americans and who so hopes to leave the world better than we found it,” Kirsch said.
“I am incredibly honored to have the support of these outstanding community leaders and will continue to work hard to build a bottom-up grassroots campaign that addresses the concerns of all citizens in Pennsylvania’s 6th,” Li responded.
Li is running against former Army Aviator Mike Parrish in the Democratic primary.
The 6th district consists of parts of Berks, Chester, Lebanon and Montgomery Counties.
