Sen. Casey Endorses Shapiro for AG

Bob CaseyEarlier this week, Senator Bob Casey made his choice in the Senate Democratic primary.

Now, he is making his pick in the Attorney General Democratic primary, endorsing Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro.

“Josh Shapiro will be an Attorney General who fights to keep our communities safe, and stands up for seniors and consumers,” Senator Casey said. “Inscribed over the front door of the Finance Building in Harrisburg is the following, ‘All public service is a trust, given in faith and accepted in honor.’ As our next Attorney General, I know Josh will uphold that trust. During his time in public service, Josh has earned a reputation as a reformer who delivers results. The plans Josh has outlined for the Attorney General’s office will build upon that track record of reform. I’m proud to stand with Josh Shapiro as he campaigns to be our next Attorney General in Pennsylvania.”

“Senator Casey is someone I admire deeply. He has always stood up for the people of Pennsylvania and I’m so proud to have his support,” Shapiro responded. “Like Senator Casey, I’ll be a champion for integrity, and will work day in and day out for all Pennsylvanians. As Attorney General, I’ll be aggressive in taking on criminals whether they’re on the street selling drugs to our children, in our communities polluting our drinking water or on the other end of the telephone fleecing consumers.”

Shapiro is running against Allegheny County DA Stephen Zappala and Northampton County DA John Morganelli in the April 26th Democratic primary.

  1. Zappala could lose his own district in Fox Chapel next month and will get clobbered by his Republican neighbors in November. Just because he lives among ’em, that doesn’t make him one of them. He is a woefully poor imitation of the Great Gatsby.

  2. Hahaha…Zapp wins Philly, gets enough other SEPA votes, wins the middle, and cleans up out west. Bye bye Josh.

  3. O – I’m not so sure. Methinks it is Zappala who will soon get smoked outside his area.

  4. Shapiro is probably the only one who asked for his endorsement. He’s a regional candidate. Voters should stay focused on winning the general election (with Zappala). Shapiro will get smoked outside his area.

  5. Why would Bob Casey endorse a patently politically ambitious person with absolutely no credentials for AG? Zero prosecutorial experience coupled with zero legal experience is not exactly the kind of guy we need to be the state’s top law enforcement officer. What are you thinking here Bob? Sad.

  6. Zappala has never tried a case in his life…but he tried Daddy’s patience a few times

  7. Senator Casey stands up to fight for a good guy Shapiro to clean up the Attorney General Office.

  8. First McGinty, now Shapiro…losing respect for Bob Casey every day. Not sure why he is allowing a Democratic Party establishment that has no respect for him to lead him around by the nose. BTW…how much respect did Josh Shapiro give to Senator Casey in 2002 when Senator Casey sought to be the Democratic nominee for Governor?
