Bob Brady Endorses Allyson Schwartz for Governor

The favorite just got more favored.

Philly Democratic party chairman Bob Brady has swung his considerable political weight behind Democratic gubernatorial front-runner–and his colleague in Washington–Allyson Schwartz. Here’s what he had to say.

“There is no one who is more effective at fighting for Pennsylvania families,” Brady said. “As governor, she will bring that record of accomplishment and effective leadership to our Commonwealth. Allyson is smart, tough and principled. I am proud to strongly support her.”

Schwartz, needless to say, was pleased. (Brady is backing state rep. Brendan Boyle to replace her in Congress; Boyle is not the favored candidate of many progressive Schwartz supporters in Montgomery County and Philadelphia.) [Inquirer]
