Democracy for Pittsburgh Endorses Joe Hoeffel

Joe Hoeffel—Democratic candidate for governor— now has three Democracy for For America  (DFA) chapter endorsements.  Last week he received the third, an endorsement from Democracy for Pittsburgh.   Last month, Hoeffel received endorsements from Philly for Change and Montgomery County DFA, also local coalition partners of the Democracy for America, the nation’s largest progressive political action community.

 “I am very pleased to have earned the endorsement from Democracy for Pittsburgh,” said Hoeffel.  “I am proud to know that I have the grassroots support of voters in Western Pennsylvania who want to see our government claim the progressive center by supporting healthcare for all Pennsylvanians, a growing economy centered on the development of green jobs, and investment in education.”

The endorsement bolsters Hoeffel’s credentials as the progressive candidate in the race for governor.  Dan Onorato and Jack Wagner—both Pittsburgh residents—also sought the group’s support, but failed to gain the combined votes they would need to prevent an endorsement from occurring.  An endorsement from Democracy for Pittsburgh requires a candidate to earn 70% of the vote from voting members.
