Former Auditor General DePasquale projected to win Democratic nod for Pa. attorney general | Pennsylvania capital-star

In a come-from-behind victory Tuesday, former Auditor General Eugene DePasquale emerged as the projected winner, according to the Associated Press, of a five-way Democratic primary for Pennsylvania attorney general.

Speaking at the American Federation of Teachers hall in Pittsburgh as he held a lead with more than twice as many votes as his nearest opponent, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer, DePasquale told supporters he would be a bulwark against the MAGA policies and election denial of his Republican opponent in November, York County District Attorney Dave Sunday.

“Dave Sunday made election denial a corner stone of his campaign from day one and still cannot look into the camera and say Joe Biden won in 2020,” DePasquale said. “We cannot have that as our attorney general. Democracy was born in Pennsylvania. We will not let it die here.”
