The Associated Press has named Lisa Scheller the winner in the Republican primary race for the Lehigh Valley’s 7th congressional district. The GOP nominee will face incumbent Democrat Susan Wild for the seat in November.

Lisa Scheller declared victory this afternoon – and addressed G-O-P opponent Dean Browning’s supporters directly. 

As Republicans we now have a shared mission. To re-elect Donald Trump and defeat the Nancy Pelosi-puppet Susan Wild this November,” said Scheller.

The AP shows the race split 52-48 – with Scheller holding a lead of just over 16-hundred votes. Lehigh County is still counting mail-in ballots – and Browning has not conceded the race. 

“To be honest with you the math is definitely against me, I just want to see the trend on those uncounted ballots before I make a decision,” said Browning.
