Obama Endorses Montco Commissioner for Attorney General

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who lives in Abington with his wife and children, talks taking on President Trump and COVID-19.

Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro is running a new online ad featuring President Barack Obama touting him for the position of Attorney General, writes Nick Field of the Philadelphia Business Journal.

“I’m proud to endorse Josh Shapiro for Attorney General,” Obama states in the 15-second spot. “He’ll keep fighting to get illegal guns off our streets, to keep our air and water clean, to defend a woman’s right to choose. He represents a new generation of progressive leadership – Josh Shapiro for Attorney General.”

Shapiro responds, saying, “Ever since we met in Pennsylvania a decade ago, I’ve admired Barack Obama and his thoughtful, courageous determination to bring about real change and advance the cause of justice. I am deeply honored to have earned a rare endorsement from the President. As Attorney General, I will carry on the fight to give a voice to the voiceless in Pennsylvania, bring about fairness in our justice system, and continue to take on the status quo, just as President Obama has done throughout his career.”

According to Field, President Obama is taking an active role in PA’s primaries, as he has also cut a radio commercial for Senate candidate Katie McGinty.

Shapiro is running against Allegheny County DA Stephen Zappala and Northampton County DA John Morganelli in the April 26th Democratic primary.
