Pennsylvania citizens voted on Tuesday to determine which candidates will run in the general election this fall. The upcoming midterm election is vital, as Pennsylvania’s elections in the fall may determine which political party wins control of the U.S. Senate. 

Here are the current results of the primary election.


Lt. Gov. John Fetterman, who suffered from a stroke on Friday, won the Democratic primary with about 59% of the vote. Rep. Conor Lamb placed second with about 26.3% of the vote. Malcolm Kenyatta placed third with about 10.4% of the vote, and Alex Khalil placed fourth with about 4.2% of the vote.

Fetterman thanked voters on Tuesday night and said the fight for control of the Senate has just begun, as Pennsylvania is one of the key states for Democrats.

“This is the most important race in the country. Control of the Senate is going to come down to Pennsylvania, and we have to flip this seat. We have a hard fight ahead of us – but Pennsylvania is worth fighting for,” Fetterman said. “We’re going to win in November the same way we won tonight – by fighting for every county and every vote. Because every place matters, and no place deserves to be written off.”

Under Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Dave McCormick conceded to former TV show host and surgeon Mehmet Oz on June 3 during the statewide recount. Currently, Oz leads in the recount with 31.2% of the vote, while McCormick places second with 31.1% of the vote. The recount will finish on June 7. Kathy Barnette placed third with about 24.7% of the vote.

We built a movement in Western Pennsylvania that took on corporate power, stood up for working families and beat back a multimillion dollar smear campaign,” Lee said. “This was never about one candidate – it was about the people of this district who have been left behind by corporations who put their profits over our lives. Today is a new way forward for everyone in the Commonwealth with no one left behind.”
