PENNSYLVANIA’S 10TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Incumbent: Scott Perry (R)

Challenger: George Scott (D)

Current polling: Scott Perry (R) 45, George Scott (D) 43 (NYT/Siena, 10/26)

Why this race matters: Watch Scott to see what’s happening in Pennsylvania. This is a candidate whose strong bio has moved the needle with independent voters. Scott served in the U.S. Army for 20 years, deploying for Operations Just Cause, Desert Shield, Desert Storm and Enduring Freedom, and retiring as a lieutenant colonel after commanding a battalion of 1,800 soldiers. Recent polling suggests this race is tightening, and we wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Scott take this one back for the Democrats.
