Manan Trivedi is bringing in the big guns this week.
The 6th District Democratic candidate, who faces Republican incumbent Jim Gerlach in the fall, will participate in a fundraiser with DNC Chairman Tim Kaine in Philadelphia on Thursday, his campaign reports. Also attending will be U.S. Rep. Mike Honda (D-Calif.), the DNC’s vice-chair, who is helping lead Trivedi’s meeting with the South Asian American Leadership Council, which is part of the fundraiser on Thursday.
Their visits come after high-profile U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Fla.) held an event for Trivedi at a coffee shop in Lower Merion and U.S. Sen. Bob Casey campaigned for him Monday.
Trivedi, along with Bethlehem Mayor John Callahan in the 15th District, are Pennsylvania Democrats’ best hope to win back congressional seats this year in a political climate that greatly favors Republicans.
