Harrisburg – Today, NewDem Action Fund announced its endorsement of Eugene DePasquale for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District.
“NewDems stand for fresh approaches, bold ideas, and meaningful progress,” said Congressman Ami Bera, Chair of the NewDem Action Fund. “Eugene has committed to that same approach and has what it takes to win in this competitive district. We look forward to standing side by side through 2020 and beyond.”
“As Auditor General I’ve held powerful people accountable and found ways to make government work better for the people of Pennsylvania,” said Eugene DePasquale. “That is the same type of leadership that I will bring to Washington. I look forward to working with NewDems to find ways to bring people together to address critical issues facing our country like reducing health care and prescription drug costs, repairing our crumbling roads and bridges, and increasing access to economic opportunity.”
The New Democrat Coalition is leading the way to grow the economy and increase opportunity. Made up of 103 House Democrats, NewDems advocate within the Democratic Party and Congress for new ideas and new approaches to move America forward. The New Democrat Coalition is the largest ideological caucus in the House and represents more than forty percent of House Democrats.
Formed by Members of the New Democrat Coalition, the NewDem Action Fund helps re-elect House NewDems and elect new, like-minded leaders who can help develop a positive policy agenda and message. In 2018, NewDems delivered the Democratic Majority in the House by flipping 31 of 40 net seats blue and injecting roughly $18 million into the fight to elect House Democrats.
