PA-Sen: Obama and Biden Endorse McGinty

Obama BidenFor the McGinty campaign, it is quite literally all hands on deck.

Today, her team rolled out endorsements from the President and Vice President of the United States.

“I am proud to endorse Katie McGinty to be Pennsylvania’s next United States Senator,” said President Barack Obama. “Katie is a true champion for working families, with a proven record of taking on big challenges and delivering for people. She spent her entire career working to promote clean energy and combat climate change, and worked closely with my administration to implement the Affordable Care Act and expand Medicaid coverage to more than 500,000 Pennsylvanians. I know Katie will take that same tenacity and drive with her to the Senate to ensure affordable, available heath care, to protect Social Security and Medicare, and to uphold and enforce Wall Street reforms.”  

“Pennsylvania is near and dear to my heart, and there is no one better to represent its working men and women in the Senate than Katie McGinty,” said Vice President Joe Biden. “As the ninth out of ten children, the daughter of a restaurant hostess and a police officer, she knows what it means to work hard, struggle to make ends meet, and build a better life, one day at a time. Katie’s voice is sorely needed in the Senate to advocate for equal pay for women, a raise in the minimum wage, college affordability, and a quality education for every child. I am thrilled to endorse Katie McGinty because she’ll be there for Pennsylvania’s middle class families, day in and day out.”

“I am honored to have the support of President Obama and Vice President Biden – two champions for working people and their families. Our country is stronger today thanks to their incredible leadership,” McGinty responded. “I proudly share their commitment to building an economy that works for all Pennsylvanians and fighting to strengthen the middle class. In the United States Senate, I will work every day to build on the progress that the Obama administration has made.”

McGinty is running against former Congressman Joe Sestak and Braddock Mayor John Fetterman in the April 26th Democratic primary.

    Court records are a matter of public record but then again Diano peed his pants and cried to Sy when his Federal filing was posted. To post or not to post. What say you HaHa

  2. TheSleestaksWillWin-

    A candidate who shot himself and the party in the foot and blew the race because of his own ego and arrogance, refusing to work with the party in a coordinated campaign.

    Sounds like a loser, even in a Presidential year.
