In Defeat for AIPAC, Summer Lee Wins Pennsylvania House Primary

HeadlineMay 23, 2022

In Pennsylvania, progressive Democrat Summer Lee has been declared the winner of last Tuesday’s primary for a House seat representing parts of Pittsburgh. She is poised to become the first Black woman to represent Pennsylvania in Congress. Her election is seen as a major defeat for AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which spent more than $2 million on the race as part of a broader effort targeting progressive Democratic candidates. AIPAC’s super PAC has also spent over $1.2 million in Texas to help Democratic Congressmember Henry Cuellar, who faces a runoff Tuesday against the progressive Jessica Cisneros. Bernie Sanders has criticized AIPAC’s spending. He told The New York Times, “This is a war for the future of the Democratic Party.”
