Strouse is running in the 2014 election for the U.S. House to represent Pennsylvania's 8th District.[2] Strouse is seeking the Democratic nomination in the primary on May 20, 2014. The general election takes place November 4, 2014.

Race background

Democratic Super PAC House Majority PAC listed incumbent Michael G. Fitzpatrick as 1 of 10 vulnerable, Republican incumbents they are targeting in 2014.[3] In May 2013, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee launched Jumpstart, a program that “provides early financial, communications, operational and strategic support to help top-tier candidates get a head start in these highly-targeted races,” according to the DCCC memo. Kevin Strouse was one of the eight Democratic candidates on the list. He was chosen based on polling figures, which indicated Fitzpatrick's vulnerability to losing re-election in 2014.[4] Due to this vulnerability, Fitzpatrick, along with 11 other House Republicans, has qualified for financial assistance under the Patriot Program.[5] The program is run by the National Republican Congressional Committee and helps raise money to protect GOP incumbents deemed in danger of being unseated.[6]

Strouse received the backing of VoteVets, Nancy Pelosi, Bucks County Commissioner Diane Marseglia and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).[12][13]

He picked up an endorsement from PeacePAC, the political arm of Council for a Livable World, on November 11, 2013.[14]

“Mr. Strouse is a former Army Ranger and combat veteran; he understands that common sense solutions are necessary to address America’s greatest security threats such as terrorism, Afghanistan and the Iranian and North Korean nuclear programs,” said Guy Stevens, Director of PeacePAC. “We are glad to offer our support to a great candidate and someone that will be a strong voice for common sense in Congress.”[14]

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi held a fundraiser for Strouse and Michael Parrish of Pennsylvania's 6th Congressional District on February 6, 2014.[15]
