GOP Rep. Scott Perry drew two more Democratic challengers Wednesday, now that his newly redrawn district has become more competitive. 

The Pennsylvania Republican’s district, is now the 10th, became more Democratic under a new congressional map. The state Supreme Court imposed new district lines following a lawsuit that the previous map was an extreme partisan gerrymander. GOP state lawmakers are challenging the new map in court, but the lawsuit is considered a long-shot.
