Scott Perry wins the primary election and will move on to the General Election in November.

The current state representative, businessman and soldier came out on top Tuesday night in the race for the 4th U.S. Congressional District. Speaking to a crowd of supporters, he thanked God, his wife, volunteers and voters.

"I will fight every day & I'll work hard every day just like I did in this campaign to represent you well and be a great congressman that you'll be proud of every single day," he said.

The newly re-aligned district will take the place of the current district led by Republican Congressman Todd Platts. It covers parts of Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin & York Counties. Platts, who held his current seat for the past 11 years, is retiring.

Perry was running against six other Republican candidates in the race, York County Commissioner Chris Reilly, attorney Sean Summers, Kevin Downs, Eric Martin, Mark Swomley & Ted Waga.

He promises to begin work immediately on the next phase of the campaign. He will face the Democratic challenger in the November 6th election.
