State Senator Daylin Leach is the first in line to run for the 13th Congressional seat. Incumbent Allyson Schwartz has decided to run for Governor next year, creating an open seat. There is lots of cross-over between the Congressional District and Leach’s 17th District Senate seat, but he actually lives in the 7th Congressional District.
“I live about 150-yards outside the 13th District, but I grew up in the district. I represented the district for about a dozen years, this part of the district.”
Leach is a Democrat who advocated for legalizing marijuana and gay marriage.
