Endorsements

Perry Warren is proud to have received endorsements from the following organizations

 

 

President Barack Obama has officially endorsed Perry Warren, the Democratic nominee for State Representative in Pennsylvania’s 31st State House District. Warren, a Newtown Borough Councilman, is one of just five Pennsylvania State House candidates endorsed by the President. This is part of an unprecedented move by President Obama to endorse legislative candidates in key battleground states. “It is truly an honor to have been endorsed by the President of the United States,” said Warren, who met with the President during Mr. Obama’s September 13th visit to Philadelphia. “President Obama’s support demonstrates the strength of my campaign. The President endorsed me because I want to go to Harrisburg to help end the gridlock, support sensible gun safety laws, serve as a champion of education for our children and future generations and protect the LGBTQ community and others from discrimination,“ Warren added.  The 31st District includes Lower Makefield Township, Newtown Borough, Newtown Township, Yardley and the majority of Morrisville Borough. It is currently represented by Democrat Steve Santarsiero, who is vacating the seat in his run for Congress. Santarsiero was an early endorser of Warren’s campaign to succeed him in Harrisburg.  A press statement from the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee on President Obama’s endorsement of Perry Warren and other legislative candidates can be viewed at http://www.dlcc.org/press/president-obama-endorses-key-statehouse-races/
