Eugene DePasquale now has the slight edge in his challenge against Rep. Scott Perry (R-York) in the race for the 10th Congressional District, according to the final ratings update from the analysts at Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball.
The race has moved from Toss-Up to Leans Democratic in the final ratings update on Nov. 2.
Larry J. Sabato, Kyle Kondik, and J. Miles Coleman grouped Perry’s race with a few other incumbent Republicans who are facing a “strong Democratic challenger,” while adding that “slippage” for President Donald Trump in these districts is endangering their reelection bids.
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.
On Election Day 2018, Sabato’s Crystal Ball had Perry’s race listed as “Leans Republican.”
