State Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA 13) eas­ily beat three op­pon­ents, in­clud­ing former Rep. Mar­jor­ie Mar­gol­ies (D), to win the nom­in­a­tion to re­place Rep. Allyson Schwartz in the House. Former Army Ranger and CIA ana­lyst Kev­in Strouse (D-PA 08) will chal­lenge Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R) after nar­rowly beat­ing sci­ent­ist and busi­ness­wo­man Shaugh­nessy Naughton (D). And Rep. Bill Shuster (R-PA 09) held off tea party chal­lenger Art Halvor­son (R).

Res­ults:

PA-08:

Kev­in Strouse: 18,428 (51 per­cent)

Shaugh­nessy Naughton: 17,610 (49 per­cent)

The primary pit­ted the Demo­crat­ic Con­gres­sion­al Cam­paign Com­mit­tee, which en­dorsed Strouse, against EMILY’s List, which en­dorsed Naughton. Naughton offered her sup­port for Strouse’s race against Fitzpatrick. “It’s nev­er easy to un­seat an in­cum­bent,” she said. “But he’s clearly shown he’s will­ing to put time and ef­fort in­to it.” (Phil­adelphia In­quirer)

PA-09: 

Bill Shuster: 24,106 (53 per­cent)

Art Halvor­son: 15,761 (35 per­cent)

Trav­is Schooley: 5,802 (13 per­cent)

Shuster’s cam­paign was “fueled by an in­fu­sion of cash from stake­hold­ers in the trans­port­a­tion in­dustry, where he wields power as a com­mit­tee chair­man.” (Pitt­s­burgh Post-Gaz­ette)

PA-13: 

Brendan Boyle: 24,476 (41 per­cent)

Mar­jor­ie Mar­gol­ies: 16,506 (27 per­cent)

Daylin Leach: 10,066 (17 per­cent)

Val Arkoosh: 9,299 (15 per­cent)

Mar­gol­ies re­ceived na­tion­al at­ten­tion early in the race be­cause of her con­nec­tions to the Clin­tons. She is Chelsea Clin­ton’s moth­er-in-law, and Bill Clin­ton cam­paigned for her and ap­peared in a TV ad. Boyle raised the least amount of money in the race. “They say money al­ways wins,” Boyle said be­fore the elec­tion. “If we win, we show that’s not true.” (ABC News)
