Fitzpatrick to face Democrat Christina Finello in key Pennsylvania House race

Greg Nash

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) is set to face off against Democrat Christina Finello in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District later this year.

Fitzpatrick won his primary by about 13 points on Tuesday with nearly all precincts reporting, though his lead has grown as mail-in ballots are counted. Finello, the deputy director of the Bucks County Department of Housing and Human Services, trounced her competition by nearly 55 points.

Fitzpatrick, who was first elected to the House in 2016, is a top target for Democrats after hanging on to his Philadelphia-area seat in 2018 by less than 3 points. 

Finello has cast herself as an ally of everyday Americans.

“The middle-and-working class people of our country will be my priority,” she tweeted after her primary victory.


The Cook Political Report rates the race as “lean Republican.”
