CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - For the eighth time in his career, U.S. Rep. Bud Shuster captured both nominations for the U.S. House of Representatives.
On Wednesday, Shuster's Washington office said the 13-term Republican won the Democratic nomination with 60 percent of the write-in votes.
Like the previous times he won both nominations, there was no name on the Democratic primary ballot.
Shuster did, however, have competition for the nomination from Paul Politis, a Fulton County businessman.
Politis said Tuesday night that he needed to score a big win in Fulton County if he hoped to win the nomination. According to unofficial election results from the County Commissioners' office, Politis edged Shuster 125 to 120 in the Fulton County write-in balloting.
Politis tried to get on the ballot but withdrew when Shuster's campaign challenged several hundred of the 1,175 signatures on his nominating petition.
