“We see things like our voting rights eroding, women’s rights eroding, and I have experience of being in the capital and working with my colleagues, working across the aisle,” Kim said.

“Those systems are maintained over in Harrisburg. We have the power to change things in Harrisburg if we have the political will to get it done. I am passionate about a living wage, it is life-changing. I think that education is life-changing,” MacDonald said.

The primary election is on May 17. Learn more about Kim here and MacDonald here.
