Murphy gets Pa. Attorney General endorsement from Allyson Schwartz

    As Dan McCaffery announces his bid for Pennsylvania Attorney General, Patrick Murphy is getting an endorsement.

    Murphy already has a couple endorsements under his belt, including one from former Gov. Ed Rendell. Today, Congresswoman Allyson Schwartz pledged her support.

    “Patrick Murphy is a proven leader,” Schwartz said in her endorsement. “Patrick will always stand up for working families and the values we all hold dear. His record makes that very clear. That’s what Pennsylvania needs in its next Attorney General.”

    The pair have something in common, too. Murphy is a grad of Northeast Philadelphia’s Archbishop Ryan High School, and Schwartz’s 13th Congressional District includes parts of the Northeast.
