Second Democrat Announces For Pa. Rep. Sestak’s Seat

A political consultant and Democratic activist with ties to the late Massachusetts Sen. Edward M. Kennedy and to Pennsylvania Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak wants to succeed Sestak in the House.

E. Teresa Touey told the Pennsylvania political blog that she will relocate from Massachusetts to Pennsylvania’s 7th District, of which she is a native.

Touey said that she feels “real strongly that economic development is what needs to happen in Delaware County over the next decade.” Delaware County, located west and south of Philadelphia, accounts for more than 70 percent of the vote in the 7th, which also includes parts of Chester and Montgomery Counties.
