PA-13: Boyle Captures Democratic Nomination
According to the Associated Press, State Rep. Brendan Boyle has won the Democratic nomination in PA-13.
With ninety-nine percent of precincts reporting, Boyle had 24,476 votes or about 41%. Former Congresswoman Marjorie Margolies ended up second with 16,506 and just over 27%.
Physician Val Arkoosh and State Sen. Daylin Leach and physician Val Arkoosh finished third and fourth respectively. Leach has 10,063 or about 17% votes while Arkoosh has 9,299 and 15%.
Boyle will compete against the winner of the GOP primary, Dee Adcock. Adcock won with 10,111 votes to Beverly Plosa-Bowser’s 5,248, a 66% to 34% margin.
Pennsylvania’s 13th congressional district is heavily Democratic, with a D+13 rating, and Boyle should be the favorite in November. The seat was formerly held by Congresswoman and gubernatorial candidate Allyson Schwartz.
