Springfield, PA – Congressman Pat Meehan (R-PA/7) announced today he submitted more than three and a half times the required number of signatures for ballot access as a Congressional candidate. More than 3,500 signatures were filed in Harrisburg in support of Congressman Meehan’s run for reelection.

Meehan said, “Since I first ran for Congress in 2010, my focus has always been on representing my constituents’ priorities in Congress. I am gratified with the remarkable support that our campaign has received through the petition process, and it reaffirms that our work to improve economic growth in Southeastern Pennsylvania, root out waste and mismanagement in our nation’s capital and combat sexual violence on college campuses has made a different to the residents of the 7th District.”

“I am committed to cutting through the toxic partisan culture in Washington, DC to get results for my constituents, and that priority continues as our campaign gets underway. I extend my thanks to the many volunteers who helped circulate petitions, and to all of those who signed in support,” Meehan concluded.
