Perry wins close race in 10th District

Republican Rep. Scott Perry has squeaked past a Democratic challenger to win a fourth term in central Pennsylvania.

Perry beat Democrat George Scott by a razor-thin margin on Tuesday in the 10th District, which includes the cities of York and Harrisburg.

The state Supreme Court redrew the district after it ruled the boundaries of Pennsylvania's congressional districts were unconstitutionally gerrymandered by Republicans in 2011. Perry's district picked up tens of thousands more registered Democrats, giving Democrats hope that Scott could beat Perry.
