"Matt Cartwright is the right man for Congress,” said Jim Dean, Chair of DFA. “He is leading the charge against fracking to protect clean air and clean water for working people in Pennsylvania communities. Matt represents Pennsylvania’s middle class.”
Cartwright is fighting the hydrofracking industry in Pennsylvania to protect our clean water, and will be a leader in Congress to eliminate the Halliburton loophole in the Clean Air Act.
Matt Cartwright responded to the DFA endorsement with enthusiasm:
Matt Cartwright: “I am thrilled and humbled by this endorsement. DFA has been in a leader in fighting for the issues that matter to every Democrat. I am running for Congress because I believe corporate America has taken advantage of working families and the middle class, and it needs to stop. I have spent my professional career protecting people and small business owners from the predatory lending practices of big banks and financial institutions. In Congress, my top priorities will be bringing jobs to northeast Pennsylvania, and making corporations and wealthy Americans pay their fair share of taxes.”
Democracy for America is a people-powered Democratic Political Action Committee. With over one million members nationwide, DFA is a grassroots powerhouse working to change our country and the Democratic Party from the bottom-up.
