General election matchups are mostly set, with two major races remaining too close to call. Meanwhile NINE incumbents in the State House and Senate trail to challengers, and three more lost in member-vs-member primaries. Good morning and here is the Playbook.
The 32-year-old state representative from Allegheny County easily defeated Brian Sims and Ray Sosa on his way to the nomination. He is on track to take about 90% of the vote in Allegheny County. Early returns suggested he may even take Sims’ home county of Philadelphia.
Democrat Chris Deluzio and Republican Jeremy Shaffer posted relatively comfortable victories tonight for their parties’ nominations for the 17th District congressional seat.
