On Sunday, Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro released the first television advertisement in the the campaign for Pennsylvania attorney general.
In it, he highlights endorsements from current and former Pennsylvania politicians like Gov. Tom Wolfe and former governor Ed Rendell, along with a recent endorsement from women's health advocates Planned Parenthood PA PAC.
“I’ve always taken on the status quo,” Shapiro says in the ad. “In Harrisburg, they didn’t like it when I stopped their perks and pushed for reform.”
In the video Shapiro also expresses a commitment to senior citizens, marriage equality and the environment.
Shapiro will face Allegheny County District Attorney and Northampton District Attorney John Morganelli in the April 26 primary. In February, Pa. Attorney General Kathleen Kane announced she would not be running.
