The race is on in the 7th

Well, that didn't take long.

Two Democrats yesterday announced their intention to take on incumbent Delaware County Congressman Pat Meehan, R-7.

And both made it clear who they were running against: Donald Trump and his policies.

Dan Muroff is an attorney and the former board president of the anti-gun violence group CeaseFirePa.

Molly Sheehan is a bioengineer and medical researcher.

Muroff is not a stanger to local politics. He entered the Democratic Primary in the 2nd Congressional District in 2016. He came in a distant fourth, behind the evential winner and the troubled Chaka Fattah, who was awaiting trial on corruption charges.

Whoever wins the Dem nomination will face an uphill fight against Meehan. The 7th District, once considered a tossup district, is now solidly Republican, thanks to the magic of redistricting. It now includes most of Delaware County, as well as a bizarre jigsaw shape that touches on four other suburban counties.
