Keystone Progress PAC endorses Shapiro, DePasquale, 32 legislative candidates


Political Action Committee gives “seal of approval” to candidates seeking to bolster their progressive bona fides.

[READING, PA] –The political action committee of Keystone Progress announced its primary election endorsements today, highlighted by a unanimous endorsement of Josh Shapiro for Attorney General. (www.keystoneprogresspac.org)

The candidates were endorsed based on their support of the issue agenda of Keystone Progress, which includes supporting abortion rights, the right to organize, support of public schools, a clean environment and other progressive stands.  (See questionnaire here.)

“We are thrilled to endorse these candidates who are running as bold progressives,” said Michael Morrill, executive director of Keystone Progress PAC.  “These candidates are standing up for our working people by promising to protect our environment, our economy and our democracy.

“The Keystone Progress PAC is proud of our unanimous endorsement of Josh Shapiro for Attorney General. The people of Pennsylvania deserve an Attorney General who will prosecute the violation our all of our laws, including corporate malfeasance and despoiling our environment.”

KPPAC received applications from nearly 50 candidates.  This was the first year that Republicans asked for the KPPAC endorsement. None of the GOP applicants were endorsed.
