The race in the 10th Congressional District is now a Toss-Up, according to the latest ratings from the analysts at Inside Elections.
Rep. Scott Perry’s (R-York) reelection bid against Democratic challenger Eugene DePasquale has shifted from Tilt Republican to Toss-Up, in the latest ratings update on October 16.
“The race between state Auditor Eugene DePasquale and the congressman has descended into one of the closest in the country,” writes Nathan Gonzales and Jacob Rubashkin. “The House race is close as well as the presidential race, which is not an encouraging sign for Republicans considering Trump won the district by nearly 9 points in 2016. Move from Tilt Republican to Toss-up.”
Perry, who is serving in his four term in Congress, edged out Democrat George Scott by just over 2.5 points in 2018 in the newly drawn district with boundaries that voted for President Donald Trump by just under 10 points in 2016. Perry’s latest bid was his closest victory since being voted into Congress in 2012 in the old conservative 4th District.
The race in PA10 is the lone congressional race in the state listed as a Toss-Up by Inside Elections.
