Update, 10:35 PM: With 99% precincts reporting, it appears that Dom Costa’s attempt to obtain the GOP ballot line fell short by about two dozen votes. Innamorato finishes with 5,757 votes, nearly 65% of votes cast. Summer Lee won with 6,655 votes, or almost 68% of votes cast.

for those that aren't from the area or didn't read the mother jones article, a nice capsule of the scumbag Innamorato took down tonight:

The man she’s challenging, Dom Costa, was first elected to the statehouse in 2008 and is well known for his career in law enforcement, which culminated in 2006 with a 9-month stint as Pittsburgh’s chief of police. In 1997, Costa was formally reprimanded for his role in an incident in which fumes escaped from an abandoned house SWAT team members were using for tear gas training, sending at least 17 residents of a predominately African-American neighborhood to hospitals and sparking a federal civil rights suit. In 2002, Costa and another officer were shot in the line of duty following an armed standoff. An internal review found that his actions on the scene had violated 10 department regulations, and it recommended a 10-day suspension. He retired from the force on medical leave before any formal disciplinary action took place; parts of the bullet are still in his neck today.

In 2008, in what a Post-Gazette editorial termed a win for “the old boys’ club,” Costa won the Democratic nomination for a statehouse bid, campaigning on a pledge to bring 8-year term limits to Harrisburg. “They knew the Costa name is a good name,” he boasted after his victory. He’s never faced a serious challenger since.

In early 2017, less than a year after Sanders carried the district in Pennsylvania’s presidential primary, Costa was listed as a co-sponsor of a bill that would have withheld funds from universities that had declared themselves sanctuary campuses—that is, schools that had committed not to cooperate with immigration enforcement efforts that might target students. Immigrant rights activists rallied outside of his district office, while others, including Innamorato, gathered signatures urging him to change his position. Costa quickly said he’d made a mistake while navigating the legislature’s computerized bill tracking system, inadvertently causing him to sign on to the legislation. Activists were suspicious; just the year before, Costa had co-sponsored and voted for a bill that would have stripped state funding from Pennsylvania sanctuary cities.

The demonstrations, along with Costa’s votes to ban abortions after 20 weeks and to preempt local gun control measures, prompted “a coming to terms,” Innamorato said. (In 2009, Costa appeared at statehouse NRA rally beside the NRA’s president.)

Yeah, really pumped Innamorato took him down like she did! Overall I think a pretty good night in PA. Fetterman was expected to roll like he did so no surprise, he’s fine I guess and could help the down ballot in more rural areas as he is fairly popular or at least has good name recognition already.

yeah even if he lacks many concrete accomplishments from his time in Braddock and has taken some positions i'm not comfortable with i think he's a great spokesman for the party and projects the right image to bring people who should be with the Dems on board.

i'm assuming that's just based on the fact that eastman is more left than ashford and the district leans R as opposed to assessing the quality of the actual candidates?

It's almost like actually making good demands has the ability to effect electoral outcomes! it's such a paradigm shift that I understand why no one ever thought of it before

I hope they are basing that prediction on more than whether the NRCC and the DCCC got what they wanted

I agree, the DSA is doing a wonderful job doing something that the democratic party has failed to do for decades and proving why it's necessary in the process

I mean I'm the type of leftist who thinks that the DSA is too inconsistent when it comes to their relationship with the democratic party but they're definitely driving the party against it's will in the places where they've been successful and the party deserves very little credit in the cases where they've won

Your tone here indicates you think this is a dig or something but, yeah, this is the whole point. Building up a base of progressive candidates at the local, state and federal/congressional level is going to have a bigger impact in the long run than quixotic campaigns for executive office, which would need legislative muscle behind them to be truly effective.
