EMILY’s List-Backed Lawyer Wins Democratic Primary In Pennsylvania Swing District


Susan Wild for Congress Democrat Susan Wild is viewed as a strong contender to win a Republican-held seat in November in Pennsylvania's 7th Congressional District. Former Allentown City Solicitor Susan Wild won the Democratic nomination for Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District on Tuesday, a victory boosted by EMILY’s List and party officials who backed her bid. Wild’s hard-fought primary win in the Lehigh Valley-area district reflects the resilience of mainstream candidates against challenges from a resurgent populist left and the party’s conservative old guard. Two of them ― Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli, 62, and progressive pastor Greg Edwards, 48 ― were major contenders in the primary race. The stakes in the primary race were high for liberal groups spooked by the prospect of a Morganelli win.
