PITTSBURGH, PA – Eugene DePasquale received the most support in Lancaster, Allegheny, and Northumberland Counties for Pennsylvania Attorney General.
In the last week, Eugene won 61% of the Lancaster County Democratic endorsement vote, earned unanimous endorsements from Char Valley Democrats and Northumberland County Democrats, and cemented his status as the frontrunner in a five-way race for the Democratic nomination for Pennsylvania Attorney General.
“These endorsements make it clear – Democrats want to win in November and they know the candidate to do that is Eugene,” said Emily Kinkead, campaign chair. “We’re winning these endorsements not just because Eugene's the only candidate who's won statewide before but also because he's the best candidate to stand up for abortion rights, unions, and working families across Pennsylvania.”
Eugene won the most votes at the Democratic State Committee meeting in December, earning 52% of the vote in a five-candidate race. On January 20, Northumberland County Democrats voted unanimously to endorse Eugene.
Saturday, 61% of Lancaster County Democrats voted to endorse Eugene and the Chartiers Valley Democrats voted unanimously to endorse. Chartiers Valley Democrats is a regional consortium of Democratic Party leaders from 34 communities in Allegheny County.
“I’ve won statewide twice, including with Trump on the ballot,” said Eugene. “Democrats in Lancaster, Allegheny, and Northumberland Counties are supporting our campaign because they know my record of protecting abortion rights, know my record of standing up for unions, and know my record of winning statewide elections in November.”
This new wave of support for Eugene adds to his growing list of endorsements from dozens of elected officials, unions, and leaders across the state.
