For Pennsylvania State Senate District 44
Every once in a while when our endorsement committee discusses candidate endorsements, there's very little debate -- we simply hear comments like "she was my top choice," "I loved her," and "100% agree" and decide to move forward; that is how the conversation went for our next candidate, Katie Muth. Growing up in a working class family in Western Pennsylvania and raised by a single dad after her mother passed away, Katie became a path-breaking educator and healthcare provider, breaking the gender barrier in athletic training by being the first female athletic training student to work with an NFL team, and later serving as an athletic trainer for local universities and an adjunct professor of kinesiology. A passionate fighter who's not afraid to speak her mind, Katie's not your typical politician, and she inspired us with her commitment to fighting for affordable healthcare and strong public schools, and restoring integrity in government. We're thrilled to stand with Katie as she works to flip this red seat blue, and become the first Democrat to represent her district in Harrisburg in over 25 years.
