PITTSBURGH, PA – Today, Democrat Eugene DePasquale received the Democratic Jewish Outreach Pennsylvania (DJOP) endorsement for Pennsylvania Attorney General. 


The Jewish Democratic Political Action Committee joined numerous interest groups backing Eugene and cited his unique qualifications as a former state legislator and Auditor General. 


“There is no place for anti-semitism in Pennsylvania,” said Eugene. “Everyone has a right to free speech, and I’ll fight for that right as Attorney General. Everyone also has a right to feel safe in their communities, and I’ll protect that right too.”


Eugene has been an advocate for the Jewish community throughout his time as a public servant. As a state representative for York County from 2007-2012, he consistently supported the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)’s No Place for Hate Day resolutions in the Pennsylvania State House and continues to publicly raise his voice against antisemitic rhetoric on college campuses and in local Pennsylvania communities. 


“Our next Attorney General is likely to be called on to defend the results of the 2024 Election,” said Jill Zipin, Chair of DJOP. “We will need someone with Eugene DePasquale’s experience and commitment and willingness to stand up and defend the results of our vote against attempts to overturn it. The board members of DJOP are proud to announce their endorsement of Eugene DePasquale for Attorney General of Pennsylvania.


Democratic Jewish Outreach Pennsylvania joins a growing number of unions, advocacy organizations, and leaders across the state endorsing Eugene for Attorney General including the Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC, Pittsburgh Federation of Teachers, United Steelworkers, Ricky’s Pride PAC, Philly Neighborhood Networks, Senator John Fetterman, and more.

Pennsylvania’s general election is on Tuesday, November 5, 2024.




Just like any Pennsylvanian, Eugene doesn’t back down from a tough fight. 


Whether it’s standing up for women’s reproductive freedoms, taking on police bureaucracy to reduce the backlog in untested rape kits, or holding corporations accountable for polluting our air and water, Eugene has your back.


He always has.


As a former state legislator and two-term Auditor General – the state’s top watchdog and investigator – Eugene exposed abuses of taxpayer dollars by anti-choice “crisis pregnancy centers,” uncovered thousands of unanswered calls at the state’s child abuse hotline, and held each party accountable to the people of Pennsylvania.


Born and raised in the blue-collar city of Pittsburgh, Eugene knows the value of hard work, putting himself through law school at night. 


Eugene is a lifelong Democrat and principled leader who will stand up to both political parties and powerful special interests to help Pennsylvanians thrive.


Eugene will continue to put Pennsylvanians over politics and stand up to bullies as Attorney General.
