glenn-thompsonCLARION CO., Pa. (EYT) – Two of western Pennsylvania’s U.S. House incumbents who ran unopposed on Tuesday will face opposition from new Democrat nominees in November.

Representative Glenn “GT” Thompson, whose newly minted 15th District includes all or parts of 14 western Pennsylvania counties stretching from Venango to Centre, will face Susan Boser, a professor of Sociology at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, in the November election.

Thompson, who ran unopposed, won nearly 99% of the votes in the district.

Out of the 40 precincts in Clarion County, Thompson received 3347 votes, with 34 write-ins. In the overall district, he received 44,893 votes.

On the Democratic ticket for the 15th District, unofficial reports show that in Clarion County Susan Boser won nearly 73% of the votes (1141 votes), while Wade Jodun received 23% (360), with around 4% (64) write-in votes.

In the overall district, Boser won about 74% of the votes (20,135 votes), while Jodun received about 25% (6,902).

Susan Boser

In the 16th District, labeled the 3rd District previous to this year’s congressional redistricting, Republican Representative Mike Kelly, who also ran unopposed, won nearly 100% of the votes.

Kelly’s opposition in November will be Ron DiNicola, an Erie County attorney who beat challengers Chris Rieger and Robert Multari to win the Democratic nomination in the 16th District.

Unofficial reports show that DiNicola won 60% of the votes (23,362 votes), while Rieger took 25% of the votes (9,681), and Multari won 15% (5,764).

DiNicola lost a previous bid for a Democratic nomination for Congress in 1994, then won a party nomination in 1996, but lost the fall election to then-incumbent Congressman Phil English.
