PA1: Finello Wins Dem Primary

Christina Finello, an Ivyland Borough Councilwoman, has won the Democratic Primary for the 1st Congressional District. 

Finello garnered 77% of the vote, while Skylar Hurwitz, a technology entrepreneur and small business owner, received 23% of the vote with 193 of 347 precincts reporting. The AP declared Finello the winner early Wednesday morning. 

Finello entered the home stretch of the primary with a significant cash advantage over Hurwitz and support from the local party. Finello raised just under $220,000 in the election cycle-to-date and had just over $80,000 cash on hand as of May 13, the final FEC report prior to the primary, while Hurwitz raised just under $20,000 in the election cycle-to-date and had just over $1,500 cash on hand at the time of that same report. 

Finello was endorsed by the Bucks County Democratic Party, while Hurwitz had the backing of the progressive group, Our Revolution Pennsylvania

Finello will go on to face the winner of the matchup between Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Bucks) and Andrew Meehan, a pro-Trump Republican and financial advisor, in November. As of Wednesday morning, Fitzpatrick held a 12 point lead over Meehan with 193 of 347 precincts reporting.

    1. It’s heartwarming that you’ll be supporting Christina Finello in November, bakrey, since the DCCC won’t be. They’ll be spending their ducats elsewhere.

  2. congrats Christina Finello on winning this primary but I will be supporting for Brian Fitzpatrick the Incumbent Congressman is to win reelection in November.

    1. Why? Fitzpatrick did nothing while Trump tear gassed individuals for a photo op. Fitzpatrick does nothing while Trump tears down the Constitution.

      1. I’m so sorry that the President messed up your mostly peaceful riots in view of the White House.

        Perhaps as a consolation you could set fire to some other property in memory of George Floyd?

      2. Where was….
        Madeleine Dean, Josh Shapiro, Dwight Evans, Brendan Boyle, etc., etc.

        Fitzpatrick’s a turd, but be fair. They are all hiding so they dont offend anyone. There isnt a leader left.

        Probably why you guys cant figure out how to tell someone’s gender. You need them to tell you it with whatever pronouns they feel apply to the that day.
