The campaign also stated that they have $230,000 cash on hand, which suggests they haven’t spent much so far.
“I am humbled by the support that I received during the busiest time of the year,” said Golderer. “My campaign’s support affirms the sentiment that can be seen across the country: people are looking for a politics that inspires confidence and enables possibilities. Instead of dysfunction and obstruction, government can be effective and accountable with a new composition. People are investing in this campaign because they believe that it’s time to do something to positively influence our country’s future.”
Additionally, Golderer addressed Lindy Li’s departure from the race (Li is now running in PA-6 instead).
“I grew up here in the Seventh District,” added Golderer. “I know the hard-working families who live here aren’t afraid to do what it takes to build a bright future for themselves and their children, but it’s not fair to ask them to compete in a game that’s rigged for the well-connected and the political insiders. We need to change the system and we can, we just have to work together to get it done. That’s what we’re going to do in this campaign.”
2014 Democratic nominee Mary Ellen Balchunis is also running in this year’s primary. Incumbent GOP Congressman Pat Meehan is seeking his fourth term.
The 7th district includes most of Delaware County as well as parts of Chester, Montgomery, Berks and Lancaster Counties.
