Lynne Abraham has been announcing for Philly mayor since September

lynne abraham announces

ICYMI, former DA Lynne Abraham has announced she’s running for mayor at a press conference. Does that sound familiar? Well, maybe that’s because she’s been announcing her candidacy for a solid two months. Let’s hop in the DeLorean and check out Sept. 17.

Then, roughly six weeks later, a few more “announcements” came — to announce what she’s already, you know, announced.

Finally, in case anyone was in the dark about this momentous news, Abraham scheduled a formal press conference… to announce what she’d already previously announced. Twice.
