“Congressman Pat Meehan has proven that he’s unwilling to stand up to Donald Trump and Paul Ryan, and that he’ll go along with their destructive ideas as long as it helps his wealthy contributors. It’s time for him to go,” Muroff said in a statement, according to City & State.
Muroff ran in the primary in 2016 for the 2nd District, coming in fourth behind now-Congressman Dwight Evans (D-Philadelphia) and two others.
Muroff says he is planning to move from Philadelphia to Flourtown, which is in the 7th District, in the next six weeks.
Muroff is an attorney, who has served as the board president of CeaseFirePA, an anti-gun violence group. He got his law degree from IIT-Chicago Kent College of Law.
Muroff is currently a ward leader in Philadelphia but intends to resign his position.
Democrat Molly Sheehan also announced her bid for the 7th District today.
Meehan was re-elected in 2016 by almost 20 points, while Clinton won his district by 4.3 points.
