Rep Malcolm Kenyatta running for US Senator

Pennsylvania state Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta is running for U.S. senator.

Kenyatta, a Black gay man from Philadelphia, who’s considered a rising star in the Democratic Party, made the announcement Thursday on The ReidOut on MSNBC.

There nothing’s written on a tablet somewhere that says America has to succeed. You know, America succeeds because every generation steps up to protect and expand the promise of America — a promise that has excluded for too long so many working families whose lives were tough prior to COVID, and this deadly pandemic has made those cracks even worse.

Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta

The seat is opening up because Sen. Pat Toomey, a Republican, has announced he won’t seek reelection in 2022. Two other Democrats have announced they’re running for the post — John Fetterman, currently the state’s lieutenant governor, and John McGuigan, a former borough councilor in Norristown, the Pennsylvania Capital-Star reports. Several other Democrats and Republicans are considering bids.

He won a second term in the Pennsylvania House last year. He was the second member of the LGBTQ+ community elected to the state legislature; the first was Rep. Brian Sims, also a gay Democrat, who this week announced he’ll run to replace Fetterman as lieutenant governor. Both Kenyatta and Sims represent Philadelphia districts
