Fitzpatrick wins reelection in Pennsylvania
Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) is projected to win reelection Wednesday, beating Democratic challenger Christina Finello to continue representing Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District.
The district includes Bucks County and other parts of the suburbs north of Philadelphia. Fitzpatrick was first elected in 2016. He is a moderate Republican and is often considered one of the most bipartisan members of Congress.
Hillary Clinton won his district by 2 percentage points in 2016 and Fitzpatrick was one of two House GOP incumbents in 2020 running in a district Clinton won, alongside Rep. John Katko (R-N.Y.).
Fitzpatrick is a former FBI agent who replaced his brother, former Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, when he retired from Congress. Mike Fitzpatrick died in January from melanoma.
