Senate candidate Katie McGinty and Attorney General hopeful Stephen Zappala each reached the two-thirds threshold for an endorsement.
“I am proud to stand with our caucus in endorsing these supremely qualified and experienced public servants,” said Nancy Patton Mills, Allegheny County Caucus Chair and Chair of the Allegheny County Democratic Committee. “While the Republicans are running a circus, we are dedicated to electing our great candidates — who have always fought for the best interests of Pennsylvanians and all our nation’s citizens. Our caucus is united and committed to helping our candidates repeat last year’s victories.”
“Katie McGinty’s candidacy has electrified our voters,” she continued. “Katie is an exciting and energetic campaigner, a proven leader, and a strong advocate for Pennsylvania’s families. Her entire life has been dedicated to protecting the middle class, and her superior work ethic will make her a fantastic Senator. And the fact that she will be Pennsylvania’s first-ever woman to serve in the Senate is a great bonus!”
“Steve Zappala has a strong record as Allegheny County’s District Attorney,” continued Dr. Mills. “He is unparalleled in experience, and his success makes him by far the best choice in this race. He has been a great DA, and will be an ever greater Attorney General.”
The caucus also endorsed Auditor General Eugene DePasquale and State Treasurer candidate Joe Torsella.
This meeting comes just days before the entire state party gathers in Hershey and decides whether to endorse any candidates in each race.
