PA State Troopers Association Endorses Shapiro, Oz

The Pennsylvania State Troopers Association has split its endorsement for Pennsylvania Governor and U.S. Senate.

The group is endorsing Democrat Josh Shapiro for Governor but is backing Republican candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz for the U.S. Senate.

“Attorney General Josh Shapiro has shown his support time and time again for the men and women of the Pennsylvania State Police during his tenure as the state’s attorney general,” said PSTA President David Kennedy. “His leadership, experience and knowledge of Pennsylvania’s laws will best serve our Troopers as they continue to provide the citizens of Pennsylvania a safe and secure environment to live and work.”

“The PSTA is proud to endorse Dr. Mehmet Oz for U.S. Senate. Dr. Oz has shown that he is, and will continue to be, a strong champion for law enforcement officers and their families in Pennsylvania,” said PSTA President David Kennedy. At a time when the law enforcement community is facing its greatest challenges, we need people who will advocate for the tools and resources that will keep the men and women of the Pennsylvania State Police safe as they serve our commonwealth.”

The election is Tuesday, November 8.
