Dush presumed GOP nominee for 25th District senate seat
HARRISBURG – In Tuesday’s Pennsylvania primary election, Cris Dush is the presumed Republican nominee for the 25th District State Senate seat with 41 percent of precincts reported, according to the Associated Press election results.
However, it must be noted that these are unofficial numbers and a large number of mail-in and absentee ballots and write-ins are yet to be counted.
Numbers from polling places show Dush leading opponents John “Herm” Suplizio and James Brown with 9,628 votes. Suplizio had 6,444 and Brown had 1,811.
In Clinton County, Dush received 2,314 votes; Suplizio had 681 votes and Brown, 325 from the county’s 34 polling precincts. The county expected to begin counting mail-in and absentee ballots Wednesday morning.
The seat is currently held by Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati, of Brockway who is retiring at the end of his term on Nov. 30.
