Current State House Representative Scott Perry of the 92nd District is going to Washington.

Perry easily bested the competition, with 61 percent of the vote. Democrat Harry Perkinson received just under 32 percent. Independent Wayne Wolff took home four percent, while libertarian Mike Koffenberger received just over two percent.

Perry is taking over six-term Congressman Todd Platts' seat. He'll represent Pennsylvania's newly re-shaped 4th Congressional district, which includes York and Adams Counties, most of Harrisburg and parts of Cumberland County.

"There are big shoes to fill, but I've had a few months to think about that of course talking, talked to Todd about his daily routine and I think I'm up, I'm certainly up for the challenge," Perry said.

For many people at the York County GOP's victory party at the Yorktowne Hotel Tuesday, the 4th Congressional district race was just as important as the race for the White House.

"I'm very happy. That was to me, the most important race," said Maxine Kauffman of Newberry Township, York County. "I've known Scott for a long time. He's a good man. He said he would never compromise his principles and that's true."

"He's passed several laws that we're happy with and everything has been a good relationship," said Scott Christopher of New Oxford, Adams County. "So I decided last year to help him get elected to Congress and I've been working my tail off ever since."

Even though they differ on almost all of the issues, Perry is vowing to work with second-term President Barack Obama and his colleagues on the other side of the aisle to get things done.

"They're duty-bound to work together to produce something positive and move the nation forward and move the 4th congressional, the district forward as well. And I'm going to do that," Perry said.
