Saccone to Run in New 14th District if Map Stands
“Since I already represent – assuming I win this special election, I’ll be representing people in that area – I would be inclined to run in the 14th District,” Saccone told the Observer-Reporter.
Under the newly drawn map, Saccone would live in the redrawn 18th district which would also be represented by Congressman Mike Doyle (D-Allegheny).
The new 14th district would include Greene, Fayette, Washington, and Westmoreland counties.
State GOP leaders have filed an appeal of the new map with the U.S. Supreme Court for a stay on the new map until after the elections this year.
