The next gathering of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party is being pushed back a month.
The state party’s summer meeting, which was originally scheduled to take place on June 13, has officially been pushed back to July 18. The rescheduled date is in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
“We postponed the meeting due to safety concerns related to COVID-19 and to ensure there is sufficient time to certify results for district-level delegates given the new Primary date,” said Brendan Welch, Pennsylvania Democratic Party Communications Director. “We will ensure that our members are able to vote remotely so everyone can participate.”
Their most recent state committee dinner at the winter meeting, was headlined by Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), a Bucks County native and co-chair of Sen. Bernie Sanders presidential campaign. The state party also elected to formally endorse Attorney General Josh Shapiro and Treasurer Joe Torsella for their upcoming reelection bids at that meeting, while the lone contested statewide race for the primary for Auditor General did not result in an official endorsement.
