CeaseFire Pennsylvania, the advocacy arm of CeaseFirePA, has endorsed Leanne Krueger-Braneky for election to State Representative in the 161st District in Delaware County. Krueger-Braneky scored 100% on our candidate questionnaire, expressing solid support for key gun violence prevention policies including expanded background checks, mandatory reporting of lost and stolen firearms and stronger procedures for keeping guns out of the wrong hands. The voters of the 161st District will be well-served by Krueger-Braneky, who prioritizes safety and commonsense policy measures. Krueger-Braneky’s opponents in the race, Republicans Paul Mullen and Lisa Esler, did not respond to our questionnaire.
CeaseFire Pennsylvania is a bipartisan organization working for stronger gun laws and seeking to partner with elected officials of both parties who stand up for policies designed to make us safer. Our endorsement decisions are based on an assessment of candidate surveys, voting records of incumbents, and the priority ascribed to the gun violence agenda by the candidates in their public statements and actions.
