Statement from Bucks Co Dems

from the inbox, a note from John Cordisco, Chair of the Bucks County Democratic Committee:

Yesterday was an historic day for Democratic values. Not only do we finally have a great nominee to take on Tom Corbett in November, but we welcomed news that the ban on same sex marriage was ruled unconstitutional, making Pennsylvania the 19th state to legalize same sex marriage. 
I applaud Judge Jones' decision and I offer my sincere congratulations to our friends in the LGBT community in Bucks County and all over Pennsylvania whose committed, loving relationships now have equal legal standing. 
Bucks County Democrats could not be more excited for what I think is one of the strongest Democratic tickets ever assembled. Congratulations to our nominee for Governor, Tom Wolf, and for Lieutenant Governor, Mike Stack. The Wolf/Stack ticket put up a resounding win yesterday and I am confident they'll have what it takes to beat Corbett and Cawley in November. 
Congratulations to our nominee for Congress, Kevin Strouse. We were very fortunate to have had two smart, talented, and capable candidates vying for this nomination who each had passionate supporters. 
Congratulations also to nominees Kim Rose, Steve Cickay, Ruth Damsker, and Jack Hansen for State Senate; and Steve Santarsiero, John Galloway, Tina Davis, Gina Kiley and Karen Chellew for State House. 
With the primary behind us, we must come together now as a united Democratic party to take on Tom Corbett and the Republican party in November. We have great Democratic nominees who share our common-sense, progressive values like creating jobs, women's rights, marriage equality, protecting the environment, access to healthcare for all, improving education, and strengthening of Social Security and Medicare. 
Thank you for your hard work on behalf of your candidates and for your continued commitment to the values of our Democratic Committee. I am very proud of what we accomplished yesterday and I'm looking forward to working with our nominees and each and every one of you to Turn Bucks Blue. 
 John Cordisco

Chairman, Bucks County Democratic Committee
