State Sen. Daylin Leach (D) an­nounced he will chal­lenge Rep. Pat Mee­han (R). A mem­ber of the Bernie Sanders wing of the party, Leach sup­ports “a base-$15 min­im­um wage, a free col­lege op­tion, paid sick and ma­ter­nity leave and a single-pay­er health in­sur­ance policy.” He joins a num­ber of oth­er can­did­ates, in­clud­ing law­yer Dan Mur­off, former teach­er Paul Perry, IT con­sult­ant An­drew Mc­Ginty and med­ic­al re­search­er Molly Shee­han. Leach sought the Demo­crat­ic nom­in­a­tion for PA-13 in 2014, an open seat, but lost to Rep. Brendan Boyle (D). (Delaware County Times)
