Summer Lee narrowly leads Steve Irwin but still too close to call Pa.'s 12th Congressional District race - https://www.post-gazette.com/news/politics-state/2022/05/17/pennsylvania-12th-congressional-district-steve-irwin-summer-lee-democrat-race-who-won/stories/202205170096
"The Democratic primary between state Rep. Summer Lee and Squirrel Hill attorney Steve Irwin to fill Pennsylvania’s redrawn 12th Congressional District was too close to call early Wednesday in a race that highlighted growing fracture between the county’s party establishment and growing progressive wing.
Ms. Lee, a 34-year-old Mon Valley native and onetime labor organizer, and Steve Irwin, a 62-year-old business and labor law lawyer from Squirrel Hill, ended the night neck and neck, while University of Pittsburgh professor Jerry Dickinson, 35, trailed a distant third in the three-way race to represent the city of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas on the Democratic ticket.
As of Wednesday morning, Ms. Lee had 46,589 (41.51% of the total) votes to Mr. Irwin’s 46,143 (41.11%), according to Allegheny and Westmoreland County’s elections divisions."
