This week, we wrote about where the three major Democratic candidates for mayor stood on social issues from LGBT rights to women's issues. Today, Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania PAC announced its endorsements for local primary races and special elections. (The organization also publishes a voters' guide on the candidates that is not yet published.)
Here are their local endorsements:
— For the special election for House District 42 (replacing Matt Smith, who was recently elected to Senate): Democrat Dan Miller.
— Pittsburgh Democratic Mayoral Primary: City Councilor Bill Peduto.
— Pittsburgh Democratic City Council Primary District 4: incumbent Natalia Rudiak
Other groups focused on social issues have released their slates as well — which we noted, in part, this week. But their full slates can be found online: LGBT groups Steel City Stonewall Democrats and Gertrude Stein Political Club of Greater Pittsburgh.
