There are several indications that State Representative Brian Sims will be running for Congress next year.
First, there is a photo of the State Rep. on Facebook suggesting that he is telling others he is making the jump.
Even more significant, however, is a flier for a fundraising event scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 6th that PoliticsPA has obtained.
The event asked contributors to make their checks payable to the “Brian Sims for Congress Exploratory Committee”.
He would almost certainly be running against Congressman Chaka Fattah, who was indicted on 29 criminal counts last July.
Several other Democrats have already announced that they’re running against Fattah in the April 22nd primary, including Lower Merion Township Commissioner Brian Gordon and Philly Ninth Ward Leader Dan Muroff.
