Just two weeks remain until May 17th and Rep. Chelsa Wagner has built the largest, strongest, and broadest coalition of support heading into the Democratic primary for Allegheny County Controller.

In addition to elected officials and other organizations, Wagner’s support includes both of the marque endorsements in any Democratic primary. The Allegheny County Labor Council represents tens of thousands of workers and over 175 labor unions. The Allegheny County Democratic Committee is comprised of nearly 2500 Democratic activists from every municipality in Allegheny County.

“I’m honored and excited by the coalition that our campaign has built,” said Wagner, “Through hard work and the relationships I’ve built working with these individuals and groups in the State House, we’ve been able to assemble an incredibly strong network of important labor unions, Democratic constituencies and elected officials.”

Heading into Election Day, Wagner’s huge lead in endorsements and institutional support provides significant organizational advantages to her campaign. Below is a sample of the organizations and elected officials that have endorsed Representative Wagner in the race for County Controller:
