Passing the torch: U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle to retire after current term
State Rep. Summer Lee files to run for seat

U.S. Rep. Mike Doyle, the long-serving member of the House from Pennsylvania, will not seek a 15th term in Congress, he said Monday afternoon.

“I believe time has come to pass the torch to the next generation,” Mr. Doyle said at his South Side district office.

Mr. Doyle, D-Forest Hills, is serving his 14th term in Congress, representing the deep-blue 18th District, which encompasses a large portion of Allegheny County.

The incumbent is already facing a challenge in the upcoming 2022 Democratic primary from University of Pittsburgh law professor Jerry Dickinson.

However, according to Federal Election Commission filings Monday, state Rep. Summer Lee, D-Swissvale, is now also seeking Mr. Doyle’s seat.

Ms. Lee, a leading progressive voice in Harrisburg, did not immediately respond for comment Monday morning.

Mr. Doyle’s announcement also comes as the redistricting process is underway in Pennsylvania, which will lose one of its 18 congressional districts, the Census Bureau confirmed in April.
