Politics PA, 5/31/17 - Exclusive: Houlahan Adds Plumbers Endorsement to Early Campaign Moves
By Paul Engelkemier
Chrissy Houlahan is announcing the endorsement of Plumbers Local 690 this morning in her run to challenge Congressman Ryan Costello (R-Chester) next year.
“Chrissy’s priorities are clear and we know she will champion Pennsylvania working families in Congress,” Plumbers Local 690 Business Manager John Kane said in a release announcing the endorsement.
Plumbers Local 690 covers most of the southeast, including the majority of the 6th district.
“I am proud to receive the endorsement of Plumbers Local 690 and look forward to going to Congress to fight for Pennsylvania working families,” Houlahan said in the release.
The endorsement is the second endorsement Houlahan has received in the last week. She was endorsed by VoteVets early last week. The early endorsements will likely help Houlahan secure major donors in preparation for the race. The Union endorsement will allow her to tap into their network of organizers and build the grassroots organization that is needed to win races.
Houlahan is currently running against Bob Dettore for the Democratic nomination in the district.
