On Tuesday, Pennsylvanians head to the polls to vote in some big local elections like the Mayor's race in Philadelphia. There are also some important races for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and Governor Tom Wolf (D. PA) is helping get out the vote the Supreme Court candidates:
This time last year, we were making the final push to mobilize voters across Pennsylvania.
Thanks to Democrats like you, I became the first challenger to defeat a sitting governor in four decades, and we’ve been working to strengthen schools that teach and bring jobs that pay to Pennsylvania ever since.
We need to make history again: For the first time, three of the seven Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justices will be elected on the same day.
There's a lot at stake in this election. The Supreme Court helps ensure legislative districts will be drawn in a fair and representative manner -- and whether or not we have Justices who will uphold equality and fairness for all depends on who we elect.
I’m proud to endorse Christine Donohue, Kevin Dougherty, and David Wecht for the Supreme Court. Pennsylvania needs Justices who put the constitution and people above politics, ideology, and special interests.
That’s why I’m asking you to commit to vote for the Democratic candidates for Supreme Court on Tuesday, November 3.
Judges Donohue, Dougherty, and Wecht all have extensive legal backgrounds and a record of standing up for Pennsylvanians. We can count on them to restore integrity to our judicial system, and help us bring back government that works.
So the question is -- can I count on you to commit to vote?
