Washington, DC (April 23, 2015) – Women Under Forty PAC (WUFPAC) today announces their endorsement of Shaughnessy Naughton in her campaign for Pennsylvania’s 8th Congressional District.
“In 2014, WUFPAC supported Shaughnessy and we are proud to do so again,” said Kate Farrar, WUFPAC President. “Pennsylvania lacks a single woman in their Congressional delegation. Shaughnessy is a committed leader in her community and has a fresh and unique perspective to bring to our country’s most pressing challenges.”
“It is an honor to have the support of WUFPAC for my campaign. WUFPAC’s work in supporting women candidates is vital to our success,” shared Shaughnessy.
Shaughnessy was born and raised in Bucks County, PA. An accomplished scientist and small business owner she led drug discovery efforts and stepped in to save her family’s publishing business. Shaughnessy’s background as a scientist inspired her to begin the 314 PAC to support more STEM professionals to enter politics.
