Inquirer: Mummers Advocate To Run For 7th Congressional Candidate

Read the story here.

Democrats in the suburbs seem to have found a candidate for the U.S. House who will never have a problem getting Mummers to show up for campaign events.  We hear George Badey III, an attorney and Fralinger String Band member who led when city budget cut-backs threatened the New Year’s Day parade, is circulating nominating petitions to run in the Democratic primary election for the 7th Congressional District in Delaware, Montgomery, Berks and Lancaster counties.

If he wins, that would pit Badey in the general election against U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan, a Republican U.S. House freshman and former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

Meehan’s district boundaries have been the topic of Democratic derision since they were redrawn late last year, breaking up what was once a fairly compact district in Delaware and Montgomery counties into an oddly shaped behemoth that stretches north to Berks County and west to Lancaster County.  Democrats accuse the General Assembly Republicans in control of congressional redistricting of drawing the lines to help protect Meehan’s chances at re-election.
