Received this e-mail today from former presidential candidate, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D. IN), in support of Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s (D. PA) re-election campaign:
After all of the chaos we've seen in Washington, the 2020 election is our chance to usher in a new era of American politics. The next era must be defined by unity and belonging — not continued cruelty and division.
It's never been more important to elect forward thinking leaders, not only at the top of the ticket — but to every level of office.
Donald Trump is going to do everything he can to win Pennsylvania again after winning by such a narrow margin in 2016. We need to do everything we can to make sure that we keep Pennsylvania blue — at every level of office.
Josh embodies so many of the values that we need in our elected officials.
Throughout his life, he's been dedicated to two things: family and public service. He champions good, trustworthy government. His work as Attorney General in Pennsylvania for the past four years is proof that progressive leadership, built on a foundation of integrity, can restore faith in public service and improve people's lives.
Josh has made it a priority to fight for the rights of Pennsylvanians — no matter their backgrounds, what they look like or who they love.
A reform-oriented Attorney General, Josh has brought needed integrity and leadership to the office at a time when we are seeing in new and urgent ways just how much state attorneys general matter.
I'm proud to stand with Josh and to help keep this office in Democratic hands.
