George Scott narrowly won the Democratic nomination in the 10th Congressional District in Tuesday's primary election.

Scott, a pastor from East Berlin, had an unofficial total of 13,924 votes in the newly drawn district.

Shavonnia Corbin-Johnson, a former White House adviser from York, was right behind with 13,376 votes.

Eric Ding, a physician from Camp Hill, came in third with 6,912 votes, and retired Air Force veteran Alan Howe was fourth with 4,157 votes.

The district now covers northern York County, Dauphin County and part of Cumberland County.

The Democratic nominee will face incumbent Rep. Scott Perry, R-Dillsburg, in November.

Scott grew up in Adams County before heading to Georgetown University. Upon graduation, he joined the U.S. Army, serving 20 years on active duty, including multiple deployments during five years overseas. Scott retired as a lieutenant colonel.

Scott is a minister serving Trinity Lutheran Church in East Berlin, but he’s on leave from the church during his run for Congress.

He and his family live in Dillsburg.
