By Paul Engelkemier
Democratic Congressional candidate Chrissy Houlahan is continuing to build her support from Democrats in Pennsylvania, announcing endorsements from Congressmen Brendan Boyle (D-Philadelphia), Matt Cartwright (D-Lackawanna), and Dwight Evans (D-Philadelphia).
Boyle noted Houlahan’s business background and its effects on Pennsylvania.
“Throughout her career, Chrissy Houlahan has shown her commitment to creating good paying jobs for middle class families here in Southeastern Pennsylvania. She has built three small businesses that employ hundreds of people here in Pennsylvania,” Boyle said in a release.
Cartwright pointed to Houlahan’s military service as well as her business experience.
“From her service as a Captain in the Air Force to her experience building and scaling three small businesses in Pennsylvania to her time educating our children, Chrissy has the real world experience we need in Congress to cut through the partisan gridlock and make sure the interests of Pennsylvania families are represented in Washington,” Cartwright said.
“Chrissy has the real world experience and will put our families and children first. Our commonwealth and nation need her leadership and I would be honored to work with her in Washington,” Evans said.
Houlahan is running for Democratic nomination in the 6th Congressional district to challenge incumbent Congressman Ryan Costello (R-Chester). Democratic businessman Bob Dettore is also running.
