Shapiro Touts SEPA County Endorsements

Josh ShapiroThroughout the commonwealth county parties are beginning to chose their favorites.

So far, Josh Shapiro has won the endorsement of the Democratic parties of Chester, Delaware and Montgomery Counties. That constitutes a clean sweep for the Montco native in Southeast PA (Bucks chose not to endorse anyone).

“We chose Josh because he has executive experience running the third-largest county in the state and he’s unafraid to take on big fights to protect Pennsylvanians,” Chester County Democratic Chair Brian McGinnis said. “Josh threw out Wall Street money managers that were ripping off taxpayers and retirees, he led the fight against the Republican’s discriminatory voter ID law, and he helped the first LGBT couples in Pennsylvania marry the person they love. Josh is the kind of leader we need to restore integrity.”

“I’m proud to receive such overwhelming support from Democrats in this campaign to bring integrity to Harrisburg,” Shapiro responded. “Pennsylvanians deserve an Attorney General who will take on the big fights for them – from corruption in state government to the scammers who steal from seniors and polluters who poison our drinking water.”

Shapiro is running against Stephen Zappala, John Morganelli and possibly Kathleen Kane in the Democratic primary for Attorney General.

  1. Most of the things you claim is astonishingly legitimate and it makes me wonder why I had not looked at this with this light before. This particular piece really did switch the light on for me as far as this particular subject matter goes. Nonetheless there is one particular issue I am not really too comfy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the core idea of the position, permit me see what all the rest of your readers have to say.Very well done.

  2. Rollo – you forgot about the Leon Ford case. It seems from the Press clippings that Zappala made some questionable – maybe even sneaky – moves.

  3. Brady can’t stand Shapiro. Brady and Philly for Zappala. Do nothing Josh head to central pa.

  4. Delco Observer-

    I guess Brady is taking bids (bribes?) from Shapiro and Zappala for “street money”.

    Of course, neither candidate will be told that it’s a waste of money.

  5. Hey… He’s immensely qualified. He’s attended a whopping 3 meetings as the chair of the commission on crime and delinquency.

    I think he seems like a good guy. He’s no where as near qualified as Zappala or Morganelli.

  6. “That constitutes a clean sweep for the Montco native in Southeast PA (Bucks chose not to endorse anyone).”

    So, not a sweep?

  7. Hey. If Josh wins will he will make his first appearance in a Pennsylvania courtroom? That would be a neat trick. THe top law enforcement Officer in the state trying his first case ever. Cool.

  8. The Montco endorsement was guaranteed. The “fix” was in (unsurprisingly). The leadership pushed for no endorsement for Senate (and tried to for 7th cong district), but for AG and Treasurer race they stacked the deck to have an endorsement vote (since the outcome was predetermined).

    In Delco, the Zappala campaign was never even contacted or notified about the nominating convention.

    In Delaware county, the voice vote for Shapiro vs Kane was so close that they had to do a head count.

    My problem with the process are the attempts to suppress endorsement votes by the “leadership” in backroom deals with the candidates, HDCC, DCCC or the state party. These suppressions are being handled in an inconsistent manner, with endorsements pushed for some races, and endorsements fought against in others.

    The County and State party chairman need to take their thumbs off the scales and try to determine the will of the committees, rather than impose their own will upon them.

  9. Josh threw out Wall Street money managers who were ripping off the public…was Greg Zappala one of them? He is candidate Sonny Corleone’s brother and worked for Morgan Stanley until he was fired for municipal bond credit swaps that cost taxpayers millions. He also worked for the Bazzano-Zappala-Porter mafia’s investment arm that engineered the Luzerne County scandals including the “Child Care!” company that imprisoned little kids for minor offenses and was known as “Cash for Kids.” judge Conahan is doing 17 years for his part while everything else went through a whitewash committee. Since Conahan was Steve Zappala Sr.’s best bud, maybe he has something to trade… Or die tryin’.
