(Undated) -- So far, five Democrats have emerged as potential challengers to U.S. Rep. Scott Perry, a Republican who has represented York County since 2013.

The Democrats are:

Gene Stilp, an activist, has withdrawn from the race, according to the Democratic Party of York County.

Perry's congressional district is more competitive than it was in previous years because of a redistricting plan approved by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

For years, Perry has represented the 4th Congressional District, which included all of York and Adams counties, plus parts of Dauphin and Cumberland counties.

But under a new redistricting plan, Perry now lives in the 10th Congressional District. It includes much of northern York County, part of Cumberland County and all of Dauphin County.

The district was previously considered "Solid R" by The Cook Political Report. But now it is labeled as "Likely R."

Republicans have challenged the new map in federal court. March 20 is the last day to circulate and file nomination petitions for candidates who want to get on the Republican or Democratic ballots for the May 15 primary. 

Which district am I in?

 

That 10th Congressional District includes the following municipalities in York County:

  • The city of York;
  • The townships of Carroll, Conewago, Dover, East Manchester, Fairview, Franklin, Manchester, Monaghan, Newberry, Spring Garden, Springettsbury, Warrington, Washington, West Manchester and York (PART, Wards 01, 03, 04 and 05 [PART, Divisions 01, 02 and 03 (all blocks except 3020, 4030, 4033, 4037, 4048, 4049, 4050, 4051, 4052, 4053, 4054 and 4055 of tract 022910)]);
  • The boroughs of Dillsburg, Dover, Franklintown, Goldsboro, Lewisberry, Manchester, Mount Wolf, North York, Wellsville, West York, Yoe and York Haven.

Other York County municipalities are in the 11th Congressional District, which also includes all of Lancaster County.
