The campaigns continue to highlght new supporters as the race for the Democratic nomination for governor hits the home stretch.
The Wolf campaign announced that Josh Shapiro, the chairman of the board of commissioners of Montgomery County, had endorsed the York County businessman. The decision is noteworthy for a couple of reasons. Montgomery County holds a huige store of voters and increasingly tilts in the Democratic direction. It is also the home of Mr. Wolf's rivals, Rep. Allyson Schwartz and state Treasurer Rob McCord.
The McCord campaign, meanwhile, pointed to its backing from AFSCME District Council 33, which represents approximately 13,000 active and retired public service workers in the city of Philadelphia and other eastern Pennsylvania communities. Mr. McCord has received the more labor endorsemetns than any of other Democrats. Institutional support like that could be crucial in a low turnout primary.
