As the endorsements from Philadelphia unions and politicians continue to roll out for Brendan Boyle, it’s important to understand that there’s really just one endorsement here: Bob Brady’s.
It may appear that a lot of different organizations and politicians are newly deciding to join up with Team Boyle, but this is largely just timed-release momentum. Everybody associated with the Brady machine is eventually going to endorse Brendan Boyle. At this point it’s just about steadily rolling out the endorsements to create a sense of momentum, and countering the news of other candidates’ endorsements.
At the end of it all, they’ll have a pretty long and impressive-looking list, but all it will mean is that the Brady organization will be working for Boyle. I don’t think we’ve actually heard a single new piece of information since the Brady endorsement.
