Adam Sedlock is a democrat and licensed psychologist from Fayette County. In 2016 he ran as a write-in candidate and received 6,000 votes.
The following is a full statement on his announcement to run for the 9th District Congressional Seat in 2018:
“As you may be aware, I ran as a write in candidate against Congressman Bill Shuster and the Tea party member, on the Democratic ticket, Art Halvorson, in the fall ’16 election. While I garnered 6,000 votes across the 12 county Pa 9th, I met many “real Democrats” who gave me their support. Throughout the summer and into the fall, I met with the constituents of the Pa 9th through picnics and banquets. I spoke with all citizens, regardless of their political party, who voiced their concerns regarding the direction this country had turned and of a Congress who has an approval rating lower than that of the President.
