Fitzpatrick Wins Easily; R’s Lead in House, Senate Still Up for Grabs
Republican Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (PA -1) easily won re-election Tuesday night over Democrat Ashley Ehasz.
Fitzpatrick of Levittown earned his fourth term in the House of Representatives by a 10 point margin over the Democratic challenger who campaigned as a “pro choice” candidate.
It’s Fitzpatrick’s second consecutive win over a Democratic woman challenger. He trounced Christina Finello in 2020 by a little more than 14 points in Pennsylvania’s first congressional district.
Democrats continue to unsuccessfully target the now four term representative due to the lead in registered Democratic voters in the district that covers all of Bucks County and slice of Montgomery County.
“Our community is not far-left or far-right, we are centrist and pragmatic,” read a portion of Fitzpatrick’s statement. “I ask all in our community to join us in leading our People’s Movement of bipartisanship and center-forward problem solving, and to fight against the bigotry of hyper-partisanship and extremist ideological purity that is destroying our nation,” the Congressman said in a published report
