Her unwavering dedication to her community and country makes her the best choice to represent Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District and EDW is proud to endorse her candidacy.”
“When I served this country as a U.S Army officer and pilot-in-command, it was apparent that courage knew no gender. The United States is the country it is today because of the diverse talent and perspectives of all its constituencies. I plan on taking these values straight to Congress. It would be an honor of a lifetime to represent Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District. I am proud to have earned the endorsement of Elect Democratic Women and am looking forward to serving alongside them in the 119th Congress.” said Ashley Ehasz.
