25-year old Princeton grad and first-time Democratic candidate Lindy Li has already received endorsements from several prominent members of Congress, chief among them Bob Brady.
On Monday, Li announced the support of three more prominent Pennsylvania politicians: Congressman Matt Cartwright, Berks County Commissioner Kevin Barnhardt, and Philadelphia City Controller Alan Butkovitz.
“Lindy has an engaging, approachable personality that makes her a natural leader, an intellect that will enable her quickly to navigate the corridors of power in Washington, and a work ethic that would be difficult for any opponent to match,” Rep. Cartwright said.
“She has shown the kind of tenacity that is essential to any successful campaign for Congress, as well as keen understanding of the issues facing the residents of southeastern Pennsylvania. Especially noteworthy are the unique assets that Lindy brings to the table, in her youth, her energy, and her boundless enthusiasm for public service,” he continued. “It is obvious to me that the citizens of the 6th District would be lucky to have Lindy Li as their Congresswoman, and she has my full-‐throated endorsement.”
Li will be facing former Army Aviator Mike Parrish in the Democratic primary. Meanwhile, Republican incumbent Ryan Costello is seeking his second term.
The 6th Congressional District includes parts of Montgomery, Chester, Berks, and Lehigh Counties.
