The endorsement vote was tallied at meetup on March 3, 2010 at Tazza d’Oro in Highland park. As always, DFP endorsement requires that a candidate get at least 70% of the vote.
Joe Hoeffel was endorsed for Governor.
DFP commits to actively supporting the Democratic gubernatorial nominee in the general election.
Joe Sestak was endorsed for Senate.
DFP commits to actively supporting the Democratic Senatorial nominee in the general election.
In addition to these endorsements, a couple of write in votes for other races included mention of Barbara Hafer for PA-12 (“Murtha’s seat”) and Tonya Payne for statehouse. The deadline for a formal endorsement is past (and more to the point, we don’t have the person-power to go through another round of formal endorsements). However, members are encouraged to look into these campaigns, and we may have a more informal vote of support / support by acclaim via http://groups.yahoo.com/group/PGHDemocracyforUSA and/or at the next meetup.
