Plymouth Whitemarsh High School graduate announces run for Congress

Christian Nascimento, a Republican, announced his candidacy for the seat to represent Pennsylvania’s 4th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. Nascimento grew up in Norristown (Plymouth Township) and graduated from Plymouth Whitemarsh High School. He currently lives in Lower Providence Township.

The 4th Congressional District, which covers the vast majority of Montgomery County, is currently represented by Madeleine Dean (D). Nascimento is the only declared candidate on the Republican side we could find. Dean, who is in her second term, is expected to run for reelection. The date for the primary election is currently undecided, but the general election will be November 8, 2022.

In his campaign announcement, Nascimento stated, “Our children deserve to share the great American dreams of their parents. But we cannot afford to sit back and simply hope their dreams come true. Families and workers will only get a fair shake if we elect principled public servants who fight for the people they represent, not an extreme partisan agenda.”

After graduating from Plymouth-Whitemarsh High School, Nascimento earned degrees from Villanova University and Widener University. He currently serves on Widener’s Board of Trustees and has been an Adjunct Professor. He is currently Vice President of Product at Comcast.

Nascimento was elected to the Methacton School District twice (2009 and 2013) and served as the president of the board for two terms.
