Keith Rothfus beat his opponent Mary Beth Buchanan, former US Attorney for the fourth congressional district race for the Republican nomination in Tuesday's primary.
The district includes several suburbs of Pittsburgh such as Plum and Murraysville and parts of Beaver County, Lawrence County, and Mercer County. Rothfus will go up against Jason Altmire.
Keith Rothfus has spent most of his career as an attorney in the private sector, working with businesses. From 2005 to 2007, as a federal employee, he worked with faith-based organizations to provide natural disaster relief.
He credits his win on Tuesday to the grassroots efforts his supporters partook in.
