Gerber endorsing Onorato Monday
Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato will formally get the backing of another prominent southeast lawmaker Monday, when state Representative Mike Gerber (D-Montgomery) endorses the Democratic candidate for governor.
Gerber, seen as a rising star in the party, will officially throw his support behind Onorato Monday night at a bar in Conshohocken.
As chair of the party’s state House campaign arm, Gerber could prove helpful in rounding up support for Onorato among Democrats in Harrisburg. Onorato has also been endorsed by state Senators Andrew Dinniman (D-Chester) and Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery), as the western Pennsylvanian seeks to build a political support in the vote-rich southesast.
