Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania has endorsed Dr. Gary Wegman, a 5th generation farmer and practicing dentist, for Pennsylvania’s 9th Congressional District
TAMAQUA, PA–Dr. Gary Wegman, candidate for Pennsylvania’s 9th Congressional District, today welcomed the endorsement of Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey.
Senator Casey released the following statement: “Gary Wegman has spent his adult life serving his community as a dentist, a fifth generation farmer, and a small business owner. He understands the struggles hardworking Pennsylvania families face and the critical importance of generating good-paying jobs, investing in local infrastructure, and raising wages for workers. One of the few medical professionals running for Congress this cycle, Gary knows our health care system inside and out, and he’ll use this experience to help the Commonwealth and the country combat and recover from the current health crisis. I’m proud to support Gary Wegman for Congress. I know he’ll fight every day in Washington for the people of Pennsylvania’s 9th District.”
“I’m thrilled to receive the endorsement of Senator Casey,” said Wegman. “He has always shown that he believes working on behalf of the people is a great privilege, and I hope to follow in his footsteps as a clear-headed, moderating presence in Congress.”
Senator Casey’s endorsement comes less than a week after Wegman received the backing of the United Labor Council of Pennsylvania (AFL-CIO PA).
