Harrisburg City Councilman Brad Koplinski secured the endorsement today of Pro-Bowl Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy.
McCoy, the defending rushing champion, appears with the candidate in his latest ad, titled “Real Deal”.
“I have the endorsements of NOW, the Sierra Club, HumanePA, and this guy, LeSean McCoy,” Koplinski states in the ad.
“I tell you now, Brad Koplinski, he’s the real deal,” McCoy responds.
“As a Harrisburg City Councilman, I helped Shady’s hometown and I’m gonna do the same thing as Lieutenant Governor,” Koplinski pledges.
“So, vote for Brad on May the 20th,” McCoy concludes.
The Koplinski campaign stated that the ad is slated to run on Philadelphia TV this weekend. With the latest polling showing the race relatively wide-open the endorsement of the well-known and beloved Eagles star could certainly boost Koplinski’s chances.
Other Democratic candidates for Governor include former Congressman Mark Critz, State Rep. Brandon Neuman, Bradford County Commissioner Mark Smith and State Sen. Mike Stack.
