Hi there,

If you think Democracy Now!’s reporting is a critical line of defense against war, climate catastrophe and fascism, please make your donation of $10 or more right now. Today a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, which means it’ll go twice as far to support our independent journalism. When Democracy Now! covers war or gun violence, we’re not brought to you by the weapons manufacturers. When we cover the climate emergency, our reporting isn’t sponsored by the oil, gas, coal or nuclear companies. Democracy Now! is funded by you, and that’s why we’re counting on your donation to keep us going. Please give today. Every dollar makes a difference—in fact, gets doubled! Thank you so much.

Outgoing Rep. Seeks to Clear Up Confusion over Name “Mike Doyle” in PA Congressional Race

HeadlineOct 27, 2022

In Pennsylvania, Democratic Representative Mike Doyle announced Wednesday he is retiring from Congress, a year after he first revealed he would not seek reelection. Congressmember Doyle told reporters, “I feel an obligation to make sure that people understand that my term expires at the end of the year, that I am not seeking reelection — but there is someone that has the same name as me on the ballot.” Republican Mike Doyle is a city councilor in a Pittsburgh suburb who’s seeking to replace Congressmember Mike Doyle. He has denied he’s seeking to deceive voters into voting for him based on name recognition, though his campaign literature makes few references to his party affiliation. He faces Democratic nominee Summer Lee, a Pennsylvania state representative who has the backing of the Democratic Socialists of America and progressives, including Senator Bernie Sanders and Congressmember Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
