Austin Davis, Lt Governor
Democratic Jewish Outreach Pennsylvania (DJOP) announced its endorsement of St. Rep. Austin A. Davis (D-35th) in the campaign for Lt. Governor.
Jill Zipin, Chair of DJOP, said that she and the organization’s other board members have met with Davis by Zoom “and we came away very much impressed with his energy, his commitment to social justice and his grasp of the issues that are central to DJOP’s values.”
Although the positions of Governor and Lt. Governor are separate votes on the ballot, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Josh Shapiro has announced that he is running with Austin as a team. DJOP also has endorsed Shapiro.
“We believe that Josh Shapiro and Austin Davis will deliver an essential victory in November for Democrats and will make a dynamic partnership in Harrisburg to address the challenges facing Pennsylvania,” Zipin said. “We are proud to commit our full support to both of them now in the primary election and going forward.”
