Fetterman wins Pennsylvania Democratic Senate primary, GOP race is too close to call – https://www.npr.org/2022/05/17/1099190209/pennsylvania-senate-results-fetterman-lamb-oz-barnette-mccormick?utm_campaign=politics&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&utm_term=nprnews
"John Fetterman, Pennsylvania’s lieutenant governor, easily won the state’s Democratic primary for U.S. Senate on Tuesday, according to a race call by The Associated Press, but the Republican race appeared headed for a recount.
The 6-foot-9 Fetterman, who often wears shorts to campaign events and has the persona of an authentic anti-politician, topped Rep. Conor Lamb in the primary.
Fetterman’s win was expected despite the fact that he suffered a stroke last weekend and was not able to attend the last swing of campaign events. On Tuesday his campaign announced he was about to undergo a procedure to implant a pacemaker. Fetterman has said he’ll be fine.
Lamb, a more moderate candidate, failed to make any significant traction against Fetterman, a former small-town mayor who backed Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential run, even though Lamb was seen as a rising Democratic star in the Trump era."
