Moro withdraws from 6th CD race

Elizabeth Moro has withdrawn from the Democratic Party primary race for the 6th Congressional District. She had hoped to challenge the party’s endorsed candidate Chrissy Houlahan in the May primary but released a statement today saying she is withdrawing.

Moro originally sought to run for U.S. House in the 7th CD, but when the districts were redrawn, she and the rest of Chester County were in the 6th.

“I was in a situation where a decision was needed:  choose a new district (as the old one no longer existed) or quit. I had always made a commitment to run in my home district and quitting was not in my blood.  I decided to continue to run in my home district which now encompassed all of Chester County and part of Berks County,” she said in her statement.

“The reason I ran this race was to bring better leadership for the people. Due to situations that are beyond my control, now is not my time.  I am withdrawing my name from the race for U.S. Congress in PA 6th. I wish all the candidates I had the pleasure to campaign in the former 7th and new 6th the best in the race ahead… "The American Dream is for all of us and I will continue to find ways to open doors to opportunity for the people regardless if I have an official title. I will continue to listen to the people and from that will come the next steps of my journey."

Houlahan, a former USAF captain who lives in Devon, is the only candidate on the Democratic Party primary ballot for the district seat.
