Fetterman is DMFI PAC’s first general election endorsement
Following Lieutenant Governor John Fetterman’s victory in Pennsylvania’s Democratic Senate primary, DMFI PAC Chairman Mark Mellman tonight released the following statement:
“We congratulate Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, on his victory in tonight’s primary election and are thrilled to endorse his campaign for U.S. Senate. We wish the Lt. Governor a full and speedy recovery from his recent stroke, and we look forward to seeing him back on the campaign trail soon.
“We also congratulate Rep. Conor Lamb and State Representative Malcolm Kenyatta on a hard-fought campaign. We hope Pennsylvanians, and Americans generally, continue to benefit from their public service.
“Pennsylvania’s open Senate seat presents one of the best pick-up opportunities for Democrats in this critical midterm election year, and Lt. Gov. Fetterman has proven he will fight fiercely to reduce economic inequality, reform our criminal justice system, advocate for women’s rights, and support a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.
“Lt. Gov. Fetterman is a proud pro-Israel progressive, and we are confident he has the qualifications, experience, and character necessary to appeal to all Pennsylvanians to defeat whichever extreme, anti-democratic, Trump-supporting candidate the Republicans nominate — and we look forward to helping him win in November.”
DMFI PAC has played a vital role in supporting pro-Israel Democrats since its inception, backing President Biden as well as victors in 83 House and Senate races, last cycle.
