Summer Lee, a member of the ‘Squad,’ emerges victorious in Pennsylvania House primary election

Progressive Rep. Summer Lee successfully defended her seat in a primary challenge against Bhavini Patel, a member of the Edgewood Borough Council. Lee, a member of the “Squad” in the House, is critical of Israel’s handling of the war and has called for a cease-fire in Gaza. Despite criticism from Jewish leaders in Pittsburgh for her stance on Israel, Lee was favored to win due to her support in the district. Patel’s challenge focused on Biden’s re-election and support, but Lee emerged victorious and emphasized the need to unite diverse communities. Jewish voters in the district highlighted a range of issues driving their decision-making beyond Israel. Lee and Patel had differing views on how to support Biden’s presidency, with Lee ultimately emphasizing the importance of Democratic unity.
