Al Gore Endorses Katie McGinty for PA Governor

She served on his staff when he was a Tennessee senator.

The Patriot-News reports that Al Gore is endorsing Katie McGinty to be the Democrat who challenges Gov. Tom Corbett in the fall. McGinty served on Gore’s staff when he was a Tennessee senator, and later was an advisor to his 2000 presidential campaign.

“I strongly endorse Katie McGinty for governor,” said Gore. “She shares my belief that we can build a better country and improve the lives of hard-working families. Katie has always viewed environmental challenges as economic opportunities. She knows how to create jobs—while protecting the environment. And she has the intellect, leadership skills, and optimistic, can-do attitude to build a better and more prosperous Pennsylvania.”

    This guy is shameless!!! He cons millions of people to send him obey for “Global Warming” and then he disappears with BILLIONS in the bank. Now he is backing a candidate for PA Governor?

    But luckily Americans are so stupid they don’t even recognize that they were conned!

    If she supports fracking that is all a lie about here regarding the the environment. Disappointed in Al Gore . He should stand up to all candidates regardless of party to stand up against these destructive energy sources.
