Decision Reached: US Rep Ryan Costello Will Not Run for Re-Election

Congressman Ryan CostelloAccording to the Philadelphia Inquirer, it’s official that US Rep Ryan Costello will not be seeking re-election in the 6th District.

Costello’s departure from the 6th District race was rumored the last couple of weeks but there were mixed messages last week when he filed petitions for the May primary, meeting the deadline. However in the end, citing personal and political reasons, Costello decided not to seek another term in Congress. An attorney and Chester County native, Costello will seek employment in the private sector when his current term ends.

Tax attorney from Chadds Ford, Greg McCauley has filed signatures to run as a Republican in the 6th District, with a priority issue for new jobs and wage growth in the economy. At this point, it is unclear if Costello’s name will appear with McCauley’s on the ballot for the May primary election.

Democrat Chrissy Houlahan, a veteran and former CEO, is currently running for her party’s nomination in Pennsylvania 6th Congressional District.

  1. Costello blames the Presidents conduct including Stormy Daniels and his inability to make a decision and then stick to it like agreeing to sign a bill and then changing his mind at the last moment and not signing it. He says the political climate makes it difficult to move forward because people are so angry, it’s impossible to get them to hear his message.

    In interviews, he seems particularly frustrated about the state Supreme Court invalidating the old map and
    altering the voting district.

    I like him better now that he’s not running than when he was in office and up for re election. He’s a lot more open and transparent and his words ring true and line up with what is really happening.
