This is Bill Peduto’s seat and a hotly contested three-way primary is being fought out between Jeanne Clark, Dan Gilman, and Sam Hens-Greco to fill it. Gilman was endorsed by the Post-Gazette last Thursday.

Gilman brought forward $55,198.81 from his previous report, which is reflected in the total funds raised.
