Wolf announced yesterday that he would be supporting Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro.
“Josh Shapiro is a proven reformer who will restore integrity to Harrisburg,” Gov. Wolf said in an email announcement Sunday. “Josh is the best choice to be our next Attorney General. I look forward to doing everything I can to help him win this election.”
“Josh Shapiro will be an Attorney General who stands up for progressive Democratic values,” Wolf continued. “As Chairman of Pennsylvania’s third-largest county he protected seniors, consumers, and the environment. Josh has fought discrimination, from Republican attempts to implement a Voter ID law that would have disenfranchised tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians to when he helped lead the fight for marriage equality in Pennsylvania. And he’s taken on the Wall Street money managers in order to protect taxpayers.”
“I’m proud to have the endorsement of Gov. Tom Wolf,” Shapiro said. “We should all be proud of his determination to stand up to Republicans in Harrisburg in defense of our values and to get Pennsylvania back on track. I look forward to working alongside Gov. Wolf in our joint effort to restore integrity to Harrisburg.”
