Stephen Zappala is making his closing argument.
The Allegheny County DA sets his final commercial in a courtroom and argues why he should be the Democratic nominee for Attorney General.
“For eighteen years I’ve worked in this courthouse,” Zappala begins. “To stand up for victims of crimes, for more fairness in our criminal justice system and to hold big corporations and politicians accountable when they break the law.”
“As your Attorney General, the Harrisburg crowd will know exactly where the line is because I’ll go after taxpayer rip-offs and crack down on consumer fraud,” he continues. “And I’ll also create an Office of Civil Rights, to protect every citizen.”
“As your Attorney General, I’ll answer to you, and only to you,” Zappala concludes.
The thirty-second spot also touts the candidate’s endorsements from several newspapers, including the Philadelphia Daily News, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Harrisburg Patriot-News.
Zappala is running against Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro and Northampton County DA John Morganelli in the April 26th Democratic primary.
