Governor Tom Wolf today endorsed Dwight Evans for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 2nd Congressional District.
“Dwight Evans is clearly the best choice for Congress,” Gov. Wolf said. “He’ll be the block-by-block Congressman that the 2nd District needs, working to revitalize neighborhoods and he’ll be a champion for the Philadelphia area in Congress.”
“Dwight has represented a small slice of Philadelphia in the Legislature, and he’s made a big difference in people’s lives, turning a once-blighted area into a thriving commercial corridor with stable jobs and refurbished housing,” Gov. Wolf continued. “And as a Congressman, he’ll do that for every neighborhood in the 2nd District.”
“No one has gotten more done for Philadelphia in the legislature than Dwight Evans,” Gov. Wolf said. He’s brought grocery stores to underserved neighborhoods in areas outside of his district, including West and North Philadelphia, a program that serves as a model for the Obama administration. And in Congress Dwight is going to fight for a urban America, focusing on lifting all people up through good jobs, education, and secure wages.”
“I’m proud and truly honored to have the endorsement of Gov. Tom Wolf,” Dwight Evans said. “Gov. Wolf is leading the fight for more education funding against a hostile Republican legislature, and he’s standing up for our Democratic values, like protecting Planned Parenthood, our right to vote, and our health care from attacks by far right Republicans. We should all be proud that we have a governor who’s on our side and looks after our interests every day.”
