Roll Call Report: Democratic Doylestown Supervisor Exploring Run for Congress in PA-8

Doylestown Supervisor Cynthia Philo, a Democrat who ran unsuccessfully against state Senator Chuck McIlhinney in 2010, is considering a run for Congress in Pennsylvania’s Eighth Congressional District, according to a report published by Roll Call on Tuesday.

Philo planned to attend a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee candidates orientation event in Washington DC, the article notes.  Her political experience in Bucks County and background in economic development – Philo is the former executive director of the Old City District, a civic association based in the historic and bustling neighborhood near Center City in Philadelphia – appeal to local Democratic politicos.

Philo joins Democratic Bucks County Commissioner Diane Marseglia in the Eighth District’s congressional rumor mill.  Incumbent Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, a Republican who reclaimed the seat in 2010, will be a likely target for the DCCC and other progressive campaign organizations in 2012.
