U.S. Rep. Bob Brady, chairman of the Philadelphia Democratic Party, has endorsed state Rep. Brendan Boyle of Northeast Philly in the 2014 Democratic primary election for the 13th Congressional District.
U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz is not seeking another term in that district, which covers parts of Philadelphia and Montgomery County, because she is running in the 2014 Democratic primary election for governor.
"I'm 100% behind Boyle," Brady said in a statement released by Boyle's campaign. "We need smart hard working guys like him down in Washington. I look forward to campaigning with him and working together with him in Congress."
