Philadelphia, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today endorsed Congressman Dwight Evans 2018 re-election to the 3rd Congressional District.
“My wife and I have known Dwight for over 20 years and his dedication to serving the citizens of Philadelphia and the commonwealth is unmatched,” Gov. Wolf said. “I can think of no one better to be in Washington, D.C. fighting for us.”
“When he was in the state legislature Dwight worked out how to fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program and created the Fresh Food Financing Initiative that helped bring over 80 grocery stores and fresh food options to every corner of Pennsylvania,” Golf Wolf continued.
“Since being elected to Congress in 2016 Dwight has pushed back against the Trump administration’s Muslim Ban, moves to eliminate the Affordable Care Act and the proposed cuts to SNAP benefits that 500,000 Philadelphians rely on to feed themselves and their families,” said Gov. Wolf. “Dwight’s first piece of legislation was about modernizing schools so teachers and students have safe and up to date buildings to learn and teach in.”
“I’m very honored to again have the endorsement of Gov. Tom Wolf,” Congressman Evans said. “Gov. Wolf led the fight against the Republican gerrymandered congressional map, worked to restore education cuts from the previous administration and led the charge against the disastrous opioid crisis that affects families and communities all over Pennsylvania.”
“I will continue to partner with Gov. Wolf to move the city of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania forward for all its residents,” said Congressman Evans.
Congressman Dwight Evans currently represents the 2nd Congressional District and will be running for re-election in the 3rd Congressional District as a result of the PA Supreme Court gerrymandering ruling. Congressman Evans sits on the Small Business and Agriculture committees.
