Harrisburg — Today, the Associated Press called the nomination for Eugene DePasquale in Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District. With newly reported vote totals, DePasquale maintained a commanding lead with 59 percent of the vote. DePasquale released the following statement:
“I am so grateful for the overwhelming support I received from tens of thousands of voters in the 10th Congressional District who support our vision for South Central Pennsylvania and who have given real momentum to this campaign as we enter the general election against our ineffective and out of touch Congressman Scott Perry. I look forward to every last vote being counted, but the results are clear and I want to thank all of the supporters who voted in recent weeks.
“I also want to congratulate Tom Brier and his supporters for their energy and spirited campaign, and I hope we will all come together to get this country back on track. Our team is ready to take on government dysfunction and ensure Washington actually works for all families, particularly when it comes to affordable healthcare, reviving and growing our economy, and tackling climate change, and I am confident that together we will be victorious in November,” said Eugene DePasquale.
“I again want to thank our county election officials who administered this election under these unprecedented circumstances and will continue to work to ensure everyone’s vote is counted over the next few days.”
