Naughton Receives Endorsement of National Progressive PAC
Progressive Kick President says Naughton is “the true progressive in PA-08’s Congressional Race”

(Point Pleasant, PA) – Today, Shaughnessy Naughton, Democratic candidate for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District, received the endorsement of Progressive Kick PAC. The national group backs candidates who will best stand up for progressive values in Washington. “I am proud to have the endorsement of a PAC dedicated to standing up for those who need it most,” Naughton said. “That's why I got into this race to begin with. I am increasingly frustrated with the growing inequality in our country, with our lack of sound environmental policy, and with the number of people still out of work. I know that we can do better, and I am glad to have a team of national progressive supporters behind me in my fight to bring true progressive change to Washington.” Progressive Kick PAC focuses on getting progressive candidates elected to U.S. House and State Legislature campaigns. They have listed Naughton as a “US House Candidate Worth Working For in 2014” who has received their “highest honors.” <http://progressivekick.org/2014-u-s-house-endorsements/>
