The 2018 midterm elections offer a critical opportunity for the Democratic Party. While it won’t be easy – due, in large part, to gerrymandering – our party has a realistic chance of taking back the U.S. House. One big step towards this goal: electing State Senator Daylin Leach to represent Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District. Incumbent Republican Pat Meehan is expected to face a highly competitive re-election battle in 2018. For one thing, when the president’s party controls the House, it typically faces an uphill battle retaining control in midterm elections.
Furthermore, despite Meehan’s attempts to portray himself as not beholden to Trump, he has voted in line with Trump’s position 88% of the time (click here to view the figures). It’s also worth noting that Hillary Clinton won the 7th District in 2016. With Daylin representing the Democratic Party in November, our odds of winning go up even higher. During Daylin’s 14 years in the PA General Assembly – first in the House, the last eight in the Senate – the longtime PA-7 resident has earned the reputation as one of the hardest working, most accessible members of the legislature. His role as a champion for progressive policies and legislation is second to none.
These are just some of the reasons, DJOP endorsed Daylin for Congress on July 17. And that’s why we’re hosting a fundraising reception for Daylin on Sunday, September 10, from 4:00 to 6:00 PM, in Horsham.
Please see the invitation below for more details and make plans to join us. Even if you don’t live in PA-7, your attendance and financial support is needed. So, join us and our co-hosts on September 10. And please share this invitation with your friends and post it on social media to help spread the word!
