HARRISBURG, Pa. — Eugene DePasquale, Pennsylvania’s outgoing state auditor general, has won the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, the Associated Press said Friday.
That's as vote-counting Friday in primary contests across Pennsylvania ate up a fourth day, the AP said.
DePasquale will challenge Perry in the Harrisburg-based 10th District, where Democrats believe they can unseat the four-term congressman.
Meanwhile, many primary contests across Pennsylvania remained without a clear victor as counties tabulate an avalanche of mailed ballots.
The Associated Press has not yet called a number of races, including the only competitive primary among the statewide races, a six-way Democratic primary contest for auditor general.
Voters mailed in about 1.4 million ballots, and turnout passed 22%.
