“I’ve known Dan for years and I’ve seen firsthand the passion and dedication he brings to every task he sets out to achieve,” Rendell said in a release announcing the endorsement.
The endorsement comes much earlier in the election cycle than endorsements traditionally do. Announcing the endorsement this early, especially in a crowded primary like the one in the 7th, can help secure donors and community activists behind a candidate to help clear the field.
Muroff is one of four Democrats currently in the race to challenge Congressman Pat Meehan (R-Delaware) next fall. The other candidates are Andrew McGinty, Elizabeth Moro, and Molly Sheehan.
