Pennsylvania State Rep. Fred Keller won the Pennsylvania House 12th district special election, according to the New York Times.
Keller defeated Democrat and professor at Penn State University Marc Friedenberg in a special election Tuesday. The congressional seat became vacant after former Rep. Tom Marino (R-PA), who easily beat Friedenberg in the 2018 midterm elections, resigned less than one month into this term.
