Who was on the 2024 Pennsylvania primary ballot?  


The battleground state's primary election is relatively late, and Republican Donald Trump is currently running unopposed since former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley suspended her 2024 GOP presidential campaign in early March.

Democrat Joe Biden is also running unopposed in the primary. This comes as his remaining challenger Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota dropped his long-shot Democratic primary bid against Biden in early March. 


Democrat U.S. Sen. Bob Casey did not face a primary opponent, and neither did Republican challenger David McCormick. Control of the U.S. Senate is on the line in 2024, and Casey's bid for a fourth term is expected to be one of the nation's most expensive and closely watched races.

Primary voters made choices in other races.


All 17 incumbents — nine Democrats and eight Republicans — are running for reelection in Pennsylvania's 17 congressional seats.

Only a handful of the seats are expected to be competitive in the November general election.

In the primary, just five have a direct challenger from within their party: Democratic Rep. Dwight Evans of Philadelphia, Pittsburgh-area Democratic U.S. Rep. Summer Lee and Republican U.S. Reps. Mike Kelly of Butler and Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick of Bucks County.

In the 3rd District, Evans defeated Philadelphia Register of Wills Tracey Gordon, the Associated Press projects.

Fitzpatrick won the Republican nomination for U.S. House in Pennsylvania's 1st Congressional District, the AP projects.  

In the 7th District in eastern Pennsylvania, three Republicans were vying for the nomination to challenge Democratic U.S. Rep. Susan Wild of Allentown. State Rep. Ryan Mackenzie defeated IT firm owner Kevin Dellicker and lawyer Maria Montero, the AP projects.

Meanwhile, in southcentral Pennsylvania's 10th District, six Democrats sought the nomination to challenge Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Perry of York County: public radio executive Blake Lynch, business consultant John Broadhurst, former TV news personality Janelle Stelson, Harrisburg City Council member Shamaine Daniels, retired Marine Corps pilot Michael O'Brien and Rick Coplen, a teacher and retired Army officer. The AP projects Stelson won.

Attorney general

Democrat Eugene DePasquale and Republican Dave Sunday won their primary elections for Pennsylvania attorney general Tuesday, the AP projects. 

For the Democrats, the AP projects DePasquale, the former state auditor general, defeated four others, state Rep. Jared Solomon of Philadelphia, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer, former federal prosecutor Joe Khan and Keir Bradford-Grey, the former head of Philadelphia's and Montgomery County's public defense lawyers. 

On the Republican side, Sunday, York County's district attorney, defeated Rep. Craig Williams of Delaware County for the nomination, according to the AP. 


Democrats also nominated Erin McClelland, a two-time congressional candidate in suburban Pittsburgh who has helped run various human services organizations, to challenge Republican state Treasurer Stacy Garrity. McClelland prevailed despite being heavily outspent by her party-endorsed rival.  

Auditor general

The Republican incumbent, Tim DeFoor, filed to run for a second four-year term. 

Democrats nominated State Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta of Philadelphia to challenge DeFoor.
