Blake Lynch, until recently a senior executive at WITF, is the latest to join a crowded 2024 Democratic primary for Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District, a capital-area seat comprised of Dauphin County, most of Cumberland County and the northern half of York County.
The Democratic nominee will likely face incumbent Republican Scott Perry for the right to represent the midstate in the U.S. House. Perry is widely expected to seek a seventh term in the House, though he has not formally announced as yet.
Lynch, a 35-year-old resident of Lower Paxton Township in suburban Harrisburg, will formally launch his candidacy Tuesday, including activation of a campaign Web site and various social media platforms.
In a race where roots are likely to be on the table, Lynch stresses that he’s been a resident of Dauphin County since birth and has spent the bulk of his professional career working for city government and regional nonprofits.
“I’m from here, and I’m for here,” Lynch said in a pre-launch interview with PennLive.
“I understand the challenges that our people in south central Pennsylvania face having lived and worked throughout the district all my life,” Lynch said. “Scott Perry is focused on the wrong things, and he is failing our community.”
