The DAs backing Shapiro’s campaign for Attorney General are: Berks County District Attorney John Adams; Cambria County District Attorney Kelly Callihan; Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller; Clearfield County District Attorney William A. Shaw, Jr.; Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele; and Somerset County District Attorney Lisa Lazzari-Strasiser.
“We need an Attorney General like Josh Shapiro who will use every tool available to take on criminals and special interests without fear or favor – whether they’re fleecing the elderly, polluting our drinking water or selling illegal guns on our streets,” said Berks County District Attorney John Adams. “Attorney General is a big job. We need a leader with integrity, vision and experience cleaning up a mess – that’s Josh Shapiro.”
“I’m deeply honored to receive the support of some of the most seasoned prosecutors in our Commonwealth,” said Josh Shapiro. “We need an Attorney General who will fight for all Pennsylvanians and I look forward to partnering with these distinguished DA’s in that effort. With the deck stacked against too many people in Pennsylvania, we must protect seniors, children, and families from illegal drugs and guns, as well as the polluters and scammers who must be held accountable.”
These endorsements are noteworthy because both of Shapiro’s opponents in the Democratic primary are District Attorneys. Stephen Zappala represents Allegheny County while John Morganelli serves in Northampton County. Morganelli particularly has asserted that Shapiro doesn’t have the necessary experience to be Attorney General.
