State Rep. Austin Davis’ campaign tour for Pennsylvania lieutenant governor brought him back to his native Allegheny County on Saturday, where he urged supporters to back his positions on education, the economy, and community safety.
Davis, whose district covers several impoverished communities in the Mon Valley, highlighted plans to support rural health care and high-speed internet, according to his campaign staff. He spoke today at the Pennsylvania Democratic Party’s Downtown Pittsburgh office.
“We have an opportunity to really change this Commonwealth and in this election, the stakes could not be higher, the contrast could not be clearer,” Davis said to his supporters today.
Davis, 32, was first elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2018. He would become Pennsylvania’s first Black lieutenant governor if he wins his statewide race in November.
