"I have known Judge Maria McLaughlin for many years, and I’ve seen firsthand how committed she is to the evenhanded administration of justice and to ensuring women and children have a voice in the judicial system. As a single mother and lifelong resident of our Commonwealth, she has dedicated her career to safeguarding the rights of our Nation’s most vulnerable and making sure every Pennsylvania child has the support they need for a happy and healthy life. Maria has the integrity, character and values we need on the bench, and I’m proud to endorse her candidacy for the Pennsylvania Supreme Court." - U.S. Senator Bob Casey

Judge McLaughlin has a proven record of fairness throughout her 29 year legal career.”

“Born and raised in West Philadelphia , she knows what it’s like to fight hard and work even harder. I wholeheartedly support Judge McLaughlin. Watch her announcement video and I know you will too!”

“For far too many Pennsylvanians the justice system has been neither blind or fair — that’s why who we elect to the bench matters. Judge McLaughlin has a proven track record of being ethical, fair, and deeply committed to using the law to make life better for those on the margins. As a single mom, she knows in her bones how difficult it is for working parents and working families to get ahead.”

As a woman of deep faith she knows the value of a second chance. And as a skilled attorney and now jurist, she understands how our courts run and where they must improve. For those reasons and more not only am I proud to endorse her campaign for Supreme Court I’m proud to serve as an honorary co-chair. Now is the time to elect to the highest court in the commonwealth individuals who share our highest hopes and ideals — Judge McLaughlin fits the bill perfectly!”

“Judge McLaughlin is no stranger to Erie. We were one of the first places she visited in 2017 and today. She has always been active and present throughout western Pennsylvania, and I enthusiastically support her candidacy for Pennsylvania Supreme Court..”

“Raising two boys as a hardworking single mother and judge, her dedication to family and community is evident through her service in our court system. Her understanding of the law and focus on improving the justice system makes her the ideal state Supreme Court Justice”

“Judge Maria McLaughlin is a friend to me and a friend to Chester County. She spends time in our community, not just during election time, but always. She’s a wonderful judge on the Superior Court because she’s spent time in ALL 67 counties. I was proud to stand with her in 2017, and I’m happy to support her now. Please help elect my friend as our next PA Supreme Court Justice.”
