Growing up in Northeast Philadelphia’s Jewish community, Daylin learned the value of community and the importance of fighting injustice. After graduating from college and law school, Daylin operated an independent law practice for fourteen years, learning the ins and outs of running a small business along the way. Daylin was elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 2002 and was subsequently elected to the state Senate in 2008. As a Pennsylvania state Senator, Daylin has passed some of the most meaningful bipartisan legislation in Pennsylvania’s history. He has worked hard to build and grow the middle class; is a steadfast supporter of public education, civil and LGBT human rights; and a vigilant protector of the environment. He lives in Wayne, PA with his wife, son, and daughter.
Now, Daylin is running for U.S. Congress in order to bring the sort of bold, creative leadership he’s known for in Pennsylvania to Washington. Daylin sees how the Supreme Court’s decision in Citizen’s United has transformed our elections into commodities that can be bought and sold to the highest bidder. In Washington, Daylin will advocate for public financing of elections to make sure lawmakers are not beholden to their contributors. We trust Daylin to reel in our political system from the dark waters where shadow donors and shady special interests lie in wait, and to return it to its rightful place: the trusting, open hands of everyday, hard-working Americans.
