(Chicago, IL) — December 21, 2009. Democratic state representative candidates Dan Farley, Ed Mullen and Ann Williams have all won the endorsement of the powerful pro-choice group Personal PAC in the race to succeed State Rep. John Fritchey (D-Chicago).
Mullen and Farley, both attorneys, who are facing Williams, a pharmaceutical lobbyist, will have an easier time of gaining traction with female voters in this progressive district on Chicago’s north side who would be inclined toward the pro-choice Williams.
Mullen’s campaign is likely to benefit slightly more from the Personal PAC nod. Up until now, Mullen’s campaign had been rated as a dark horse by most observers. But no more. Even if he has to share the Personal PAC endorsement, it’s a key boost of credibility to his campaign, including that of Planned Parenthood and others.
“… I look forward to working with Personal PAC in Springfield to pass the Reproductive Health and Access Act protecting a woman’s right to choose,” said Mullen.
Mullen has also knocked on more than 7,500 doors of voters through out the district and generated thousands of telephone calls. His voter contact and canvassing operation is making its presence felt throughout the district.
Farley and Williams underestimate Mullen at their own peril.
Scott Tucker is running in the Republican primary.
