Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro brought his gubernatorial campaign to the Lebanon Democratic Party headquarters on South 6th Street Thursday afternoon, talking with supporters, taking “selfies” and firing up the party faithful:

He shared the stage during his visit with his Lt. Governor selection, State Rep. Austin Davis of Allegheny County.

Davis is seen as a person who can help shore up western PA support, since Shapiro is well known in the eastern part of the state, having served as a Montgomery County Commissioner and four-term state house member prior to becoming AG.
