PHL-15: Kenney Endorsed by Philadelphia NOW

Kenney-NOWThe Philadelphia National Organization for Women (NOW) want Jim Kenney to be the next Mayor.

Kenney met with a group for NOW leaders today, led by President Nina Ahmad.

“During his time on Council, Kenney consistently fought to expand opportunities for women and families,” Ahmad said. “Whether it was on equal pay, women’s sports, domestic abuse or street harassment, Kenney was a strong ally to Philadelphia’s women. We are proud to endorse him and we look forward to working with him to advance gender equality across our city.”

“I’m humbled to have the support of this incredible group of women,” Kenney responded. “Their work for Philadelphia’s women and families has been invaluable in moving our city forward. As mayor, I will join them in the fight for equal pay by expanding the purview of the Commission on Human Relations so that they have the resources necessary to investigate allegations of pay inequality, and the ability to punish employers who discriminate against their employees. I will also continue my work countering street harassment and domestic abuse because every women deserves to feel safe on her street and in her home.”

While State Senator Anthony Williams is Kenney’s biggest competition, this move may hurt former District Attorney Lynne Abraham the most as she is the only woman in the race. Increasingly, Williams and Kenney seem to be pulling away from the rest of the field.

Earlier today, for instance, Abraham leaked an internal poll showing her in the lead. This is a common tactic campaigns use to try to reverse a negative news cycle.
