Kane gets Bill Clinton’s endorsement for Pa. Attorney General

    Kathleen Kane, one of the Democratic candidates in Pennsylvania’s attorney general race, has won the endorsement of former President Bill Clinton.

    PoliticsPA has published a statement from Clinton that champions Kane’s experience as a prosecutor.

    “Kathleen is a great Democrat who understands that an Attorney General’s job is to stand up for consumers and people,” Clinton said. “I’m proud to endorse my friend Kathleen Kane and I hope she’ll become the first woman ever elected Attorney General by the people of Pennsylvania.”

    No surprise to her Democratic opponent, former Congressman Patrick Murphy. His campaign said the endorsement was expected, given Kane’s support for the Clintons.
