US Congressman Dan Meuser has been reelected to serve a third term in the 9th Congressional District. He defeated Democrat Amanda Waldman.

Rep. Meuser announced victory shortly after 10pm, surrounded by supporters at Leggio’s in Dallas.

He said he wants to make changes to current policies and create accountability in government.

“We’re seeing super high gasoline prices, diesel prices, and it doesn’t need to be this way,” he said.

He says he and his team are looking forward to continuing the work they are doing.

“Constituent services are a very important part of our work, so now that our team is that much more seasoned and experienced, that will improve,” Meuser said. “There’s a lot of projects here at home from transportation and infrastructure to community development projects that I’m excited about.”

Rep. Meuser was elected in 2018. Previously, he was a businessman and served as Governor Tom Corbett’s Secretary of Revenue from 2011 to 2018.

Pennsylvania’s 9th district includes all of Bradford, Susquehanna, Wyoming, Sullivan, Columbia, Lebanon, Montour, Northumberland and Schuylkill counties and parts of Luzerne, Lycoming and Berks counties.
