Pennsylvania state official launches Democratic challenge to GOP rep in district carried by Trump

Source: The Hill

Pennsylvania's Auditor General Eugene DePasquale (D) officially launched a campaign to challenge Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) on Monday, setting up what could be a contentious 2020 battle in the state's 10th congressional district. 

If he wins the Democratic primary, DePasquale would present a formidable challenge to Perry. The district went for President Trump in 2016 but that same year DePasquale won his reelection bid for auditor general.

Pennsylvania Democrats have expressed optimism about the district since it was redrawn following the state Supreme Court's ruling that the previous lines had been gerrymandered to benefit Republicans.

DePasquale's candidacy is another sign that Pennsylvania Democrats are getting in an offensive position after Trump flipped the state red in 2016.

1. Great news!

Perry used to be my rep. in southern York County. He's a real Trumper.

I've talked to Gene a couple of times and he is a great guy.

3. This is a tricky district even in its new configuration

But if the party can rally some more votes out of Harrisburg and York and if Wolf stumps there (since he is from the York area), perhaps we have a better chance at taking that seat!
