 NEWS: Josh Shapiro Earns the Unanimous Endorsement of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party in His Campaign for Governor

PENNSYLVANIA – Today, Attorney General Josh Shapiro earned the unanimous endorsement of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party in his campaign for Governor. The Democratic Party is united behind Shapiro, and with this endorsement his campaign continues to demonstrate unparalleled strength and broad support for his record of taking on the big fights and his vision for the Commonwealth’s future.

In response to today’s endorsement, Josh Shapiro released the following statement:

“I am humbled and proud to have the endorsement of the Pennsylvania Democratic Party in my campaign to be the next Governor of Pennsylvania. The stakes couldn’t be higher in 2022, and who we elect as our next Governor will shape Pennsylvania’s future. Pennsylvania Democrats are united behind our campaign and ready to take on the big fights together and get things done for our Commonwealth.

While the Republican candidates fight among themselves, Pennsylvania Democrats will continue to focus on the issues that matter most to Pennsylvanians – growing our economy, creating good-paying jobs and lowering costs, improving our schools and keeping our communities safe so that every child and family in our Commonwealth has a chance to thrive. As Governor, I will fight for Pennsylvanians every single day – and I look forward to getting to work.”

PA Dems Chairwoman Nancy Patton Mills released the following statement about the endorsement:

“We are so thrilled to fully back Josh in his campaign to be Governor of Pennsylvania. For years, Josh has taken on the big fights on behalf of all Pennsylvanians, working tirelessly to fight for working families, hold powerful and corrupt interests accountable, and keep our communities safe. He is a uniter who will always stand up for the little guy and bring our Commonwealth together for a better, brighter future. We are proud of Josh and proud to work with him as we take on his next big fight together.”

This endorsement comes on the heels of the Shapiro for Pennsylvania campaign announcing a record-shattering fundraising haul, beginning 2022 with $13.5 million cash on hand.

Since launching in October, Josh Shapiro has continually built a strong, united movement behind his campaign for Governor. He has campaigned across the Commonwealth and earned the support of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents alike. He has won the endorsement of major Pennsylvania unions, including the SEIU PA State Council, Pennsylvania AFL-CIO, the Pennsylvania Conference of Teamsters, the Pennsylvania Amalgamated Transit Union, the EAS Carpenters, PSEA, Pennsylvania State Council of Sheet Metal Workers, UFCW 1776, PASNAP, and AFSCME District Council 13.

Josh’s unparalleled fundraising and record support from across Pennsylvania demonstrates his ability to bring people together behind his campaign and his vision. The Shapiro for Pennsylvania campaign will continue working hard every single day to earn Pennsylvanians’ votes and win this November.
