Franklin County candidate Cameron Schroy received an endorsement April 9th from the Forward Party, during an event in Gettysburg. Schroy runs for Pennsylvania’s District 33 Senate seat, and is unopposed in the upcoming April 23rd Democratic primary election. The incumbent State Senator is Doug Mastriano, who also runs unchallenged in the Republican primary.

Following is, in part, the Forward Party’s announcement of their Cameron Schroy endorsement.

Gettysburg – The Forward Party of Pennsylvania announced the affiliation of Cameron

Schroy, the presumptive Democratic nominee for PA Senate District 33. The lifelong resident of

Franklin County hopes to unseat Doug Mastriano so that the people of the district can be

represented by someone looking to solve the problems they face every day.

Christian Fyke, Chair of the Forward Party of Pennsylvania, said, “The Forward Party rejects

political extremism and has, as a core value, the defense of the rule of law. It’s important for us

to support candidates when they’re running against elected officials who have attacked the

basis of our democracy.”

Schroy said of the affiliation, “I am running as a Forward Democrat because we must move our

country forward. Partisanship and division are holding us back, and we need new, cooperative

leadership that puts the people first. The Forward Party wants to reshape the political landscape

for the better—and so do I. I fully welcome their support, am proud of their endorsement, and

am proud to call myself a Forward Democrat.”

At the announcement event at the Adams County Courthouse in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania,

Forward national Co-chair Andrew Yang said, “The hard working people of this district deserve a candidate who will spend their time solving problems rather than focusing on conspiracy

theories. Cameron Schroy is that candidate—an energetic and idealistic young man with a long

history of public service. Who better to serve in government than a lifelong civics teacher?”

Yang continued, “By affiliating with the Forward Party today, he shows that he will work towards compromise and solutions, and not be beholden to interest groups with rigid ideologies.

Through seeking practical solutions to the issues that face this district and Pennsylvanians, he will make sure everyone in the Keystone State has the chance to build a good life for themselves and their families.”

The Forward Party is focused on state and local races. Supporting candidates of good character is a key part of the Party’s strategy.
