Press Release

Burlington, VT – On March 26th, Democracy for America (DFA) endorsed Matt Cartwright for Congress. Cartwright continues to be a progressive champion for Pennsylvania’s 17th district.
"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.”
