Continuing today’s theme of primary challenges against Republican House incumbents, Pennsylvania state Rep. Justin Simmons (R-Lehigh County) confirms that he is seriously considering challenging seven-term Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Allentown) next year. Mr. Simmons says he is “90 percent there” about making a decision.

The 15th District encompasses most of the Allentown/Bethlehem area and stretches west along Interstate 78 to the outskirts of Harrisburg.
