According to Joe Uchill of The Hill, among the emails stolen by hacker Gufficer 2.0 (largely believed to be the Russian Government) were DCCC memos that concerned SEPA’s three competitive congressional districts.
They revealed that the DCCC desperately wanted Marian Moskowitz to be the Democratic nominee in PA-6 instead of Mike Parrish.
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer even met with Moskowitz but to no avail.
“Please tell Moskowitz that the DCCC will be all-in on her candidacy,” stated Hoyer’s talking points to the former State Rep. candidate. “We will be there from day one to support her and help her build a strong campaign. DCCC is targeting this district but the current Democratic candidate (Mike Parrish) is not getting the job done.”
The DCCC also had difficulty in PA-7 keeping their chosen candidate Bill Golderer in the race.
“[He] has tried to exit the race several times. Please ask him to stop telling supporters or members about his plans to exit the race without a plan in place.”
Despite all of this, the hacks revealed no evidence that the DCCC favored either Democratic candidate in the PA-8 contest. This is surprising since it was both the party’s best chance at victory and a primary we were told they were interested in.
The 6th Congressional District consists of parts of Berks, Chester, Lebanon and Montgomery Counties.
The 7th Congressional District includes most of Delaware County as well as parts of Chester, Montgomery, Berks and Lancaster Counties.
The 8th Congressional District represents all of Bucks County as well as parts of upper Montgomery County.
