The Working Families Party is taking on new territory! From a recent Ballot Access News post by election expert Richard Winger:
Pennsylvania will hold a special election on March 12 to fill the vacancy in the 190th district State House seat. Four candidates are on the ballot, a Democrat, a Republican, an independent, and the Working Families nominee, Pamela K. Williams. This is the first time the Working Families Party has ever appeared on the ballot in Pennsylvania. The 190th district is in Philadelphia.
Pamela K. Williams is a surprisingly well-known local community activist and her candidacy offers the “possibility of making history as the commonwealth’s first openly lesbian state representative”, according to a recent article at Philadelphia magazine.
The Working Families Party is very prominent in states like New York, often endorsing Democratic Party candidates. Thanks to their impressively constructed website, you can find state chapters or local branches in Colorado, Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Washington state, or Washington, DC.
