A couple of the likely candidates to succeed U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz in Pennsylvania’s 13th Congressional District are two of the funniest people in local politics.

Montgomery County State Senator Daylin Leach is known around the capitol as an accomplished stand-up, and former Philadelphia City Controller Jonathan Saidel is a natural cut-up who routinely breaks up crowds with winning Borscht Belt schtick.

They’re likely to compete in the Democratic primary for the district, which includes large areas of Northeast Philadelphia and plenty of Montgomery County.
