U.S. Senate

Sen. Pat Toomey (R) is retiring. Surgeon and media personality Mehmet Oz has been endorsed by Donald Trump. Until recently, this appeared to be a two-way race between Oz and hedge fund manager David McCormick. However, Kathy Barnette, a conservative commentator, has surged in recent weeks.

For the Democrats, Lt. Gov. John Fetterman has been polling well ahead of his closest challengers, Rep. Conor Lamb (PA-18) and State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta. However, Fetterman suffered a stroke last Friday. While he says he is on the mend, he remains hospitalized as of Election Day.


Gov. Tom Wolf (D) was ineligible due to term limits. State Attorney General Josh Shapiro is running uncontested for the Democratic nomination. On the Republican side, State Sen. Doug Mastriano appears to have the momentum heading into Election Day.

U.S. House

These primaries will be conducted using redistricted congressional boundaries. The state lost a district after the 2020 Census.

The table below highlights five notable primaries, followed by results for each of them. Below that are party-specific tables with results for each of the state's 17 congressional districts.

District Party Comments
7 R Two Republicans are seeking the nomination to take on three-term Democratic incumbent Susan Wild in this true toss-up district.
8 R Located in northeastern PA, just north of District 7, this was one of the few crossover districts in 2020. Incumbent Democrat Matt Cartwright is seeking a 6th term. Two Republicans are seeking the nomination to oppose him.
12 D Incumbent Mike Doyle is not seeking reelection in this safely Democratic Pittsburgh-area district. Progressive State Rep. Summer Lee is favored, although Doyle has endorsed attorney Steve Irwin.
17 BOTH Incumbent Democrat Conor Lamb is seeking the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate. Three Republicans and two Democrats are contesting for the nominations in what looks like a highly competitive general election race.
