Former U.S. Representative Chris Carney today announced that he is endorsing Mark Critz for Lieutenant Governor. Carney praised Critz for his dedication to creating jobs, supporting policies that strengthen the middle class and being a rational voice in Congress.
“Nobody is more committed to creating jobs and strengthening the middle class than Mark Critz,” Carney said. “We worked closely in Congress, and together we fought for policies with broad appeal, by focusing on solutions, not politics. Most importantly, our goals were to strengthen the middle class and to be strong voices on behalf of our veterans and the men and women of our military, and their families.”
Carney represented Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District in northeastern Pennsylvania from 2007 to 2011. He served as a Commander in the Naval Reserve where he served overseas on active duty for Operation Noble Eagle and Operation Enduring Freedom. In Congress, Carney served on the Homeland Security and Transportation and Infrastructure Committees.
“Chris Carney is a hero who served our country with distinction in the military and in Congress,” Critz said. “I am proud to have Congressman Carney’s support because he and I have a shared commitment to creating jobs and rebuilding our middle class.”
Critz recently received the endorsement of the United Steelworkers.
