‘SUMMER’ HAS ARRIVED – Summer Lee defeats incumbent Paul Costa in Democratic Primary by huge 68% to 32% margin
In a stunning 68 to 32 percent margin, Lee defeated state Rep. Costa in the May 15 Primary Election. Lee is now the Democratic nominee for the state House District 34 seat, and, in this highly Democratic House District, she’s virtually assured to win the November 2018 general election and become the first African American female from outside the City of Pittsburgh limits elected to the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
With 100 percent of the precincts reporting, Lee garnered 6,795 votes. Costa finished with 3,182. A total of 9,977 votes were cast, according to totals presented by WTAE-TV.
: After calling Lee to congratulate her, Paul Costa told the Post-Gazette, “It’s not even close. Their campaign did a lot better job of getting people out to vote. They energized a lot of people, and they showed up at the polls.”
