Represent! PAC Announces Support For 18 Women Seeking PA Legislative Seats

democratic-donkeyToday, Represent! PAC announced 18 endorsements for the upcoming April 26th primary.

“Represent PAC is excited to endorse these 18 women for election this April,” Represent PAC co-founder Aubrey Montgomery said. “This year’s candidates reflect a diversity of experience, background, and geography, and each of them would provide much-needed leadership in Harrisburg.”

Represent! PAC endorsed nine incumbents to ensure those women retain their seats: Rep. Leslie Acosta (HD-197), Rep. Donna Bullock (HD-195), Tonyelle Cook-Artis (HD-200), Rep. Mary Jo Daley (HD-148), Rep. Madeleine Dean (HD-153), Rep. Pam DeLissio (HD-194), Rep. Patty Kim (HD-103), Rep. Leanne Krueger-Braneky (HD-161), Rep. Joanna McClinton, (HD-191), and Sen. Judy Schwank (SD-11).

Represent! PAC also endorsed eight additional candidates: Damary M. Bonilla (HD-189), Morgan Cephas (HD-192), Carolyn Comitta (HD-156), Diane Cornman-Levy (HD-168), Barbarann Keffer (HD-163), Elaine Paul Schaefer (HD-165), Mary Popovich (HD-58) and Linda Weaver (HD-150).

“I am almost always the only woman in the room when substantive and impactful decisions are made for our community,” endorsed candidate and Radnor Commissioner Elaine Paul Schaefer said. “My own decision to run was heavily influenced by an encouraging incumbent [Represent! PAC candidate Leanne Krueger-Braneky], and I would hope to emulate that influence on other women.”

The women will receive support in the form of organization and capital assistance from the political action committee.

  1. Your missing a name one women from Delco. Name begins with an M and ends in an O…. Also goes by the alias the ambassador.

  2. just a bunch of democrat hens bemoaning the injustices that males have inflicted upon them……cackle cackle cackle

  3. Why are they not getting involved in any of the federal races? It’s pretty sad that PA has the largest all male delegation.

  4. If I was in Pennsylvania myself and I would also endorse these 18 Women as well.

  5. The PAC should also endorse the Potential Replacement for Josh Sharpio if he does gets elected as Attorney General in 2016. Maybe I’m hoping for Allyson Schwartz runs for Montogermery County Commissioner in 2017 and get appointed to the seat as well.

  6. Ashley should take a close look at what is going on in Philly DAs Office. Find someone to run against Seth Williams!!
