DePasquale wins Democratic nomination to run for Congress (Pennsylvania)

Eugene DePasquale, Pennsylvania's outgoing state auditor general, has won the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, as vote-counting Friday in primary contests across the state ate up a fourth day.

DePasquale will challenge Perry in the Harrisburg-based 10th District in what many expect will be Pennsylvania's premier congressional contest in this fall's general election. Democrats say they believe they can unseat the four-term Perry, after he won the district by fewer than 3 percentage points in 2018 over a political newcomer.

Perry, as a member of the ultra-conservative Freedom Caucus, has been a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump

giving Democrats hope is Perry's comparatively narrower victory in 2018, as well as Gov. Tom Wolf and Casey, both Democrats, beating their 2018 opponents in the district.
