PA-Gov: Robert Kennedy, Jr. to Campaign for McGinty

robert kennedy jr

The son of Robert F. Kennedy will campaign for former DEP Secretary and gubernatorial candidate Katie McGinty this week.

On Thursday, the two will appear together in Scranton, Pa.

“I am honored to have a true environmental leader like Robert Kennedy Jr. campaign for me this week. He and his family have been pillars of the Democratic Party for decades and their commitment to protecting the environment while fighting to strengthen the middle class is unmatched,” McGinty said.

Kennedy serves as Chief Prosecuting Attorney for the Hudson Riverkeeper and President of Waterkeeper Alliance. He is also a Clinical Professor and Supervising Attorney at Pace University School of Law’s Environmental Litigation Clinic. Earlier in his career he served as Assistant District Attorney in New York City.

He’s been politically active in the past, having worked on the presidential campaigns of Edward M. Kennedy in 1980, Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004.

This isn’t the first time that a big national figure has come to McGinty’s aid – Al Gore endorsed her in February and former head of the Democratic Governor’s Association Bill Richardson held a fundraiser for her last month.

McGinty faces State Treasurer Rob McCord, former Revenue Secretary Tom Wolf and Rep. Allyson Schwartz for the Democratic nomination for governor.

  1. I sure hope Bobby and Katie will bring their garbage bags and litter sticks with them to clean up this slum of a state.

  2. Ughhh…figures a Kennedy wouldn’t give a shit about the fate of rural Pennsylvania. He’s really living up to the legacy of his uncle JFK who had 40 miles of the Delaware River valley seized and homes bulldozed for the Tocks Island Dam project. Now he can doom us with fracking. What an asshole.
