Margolies Defeated in Comeback Attempt

Brendan Boyle (D) "easily defeated three other Democrats Tuesday night, including former Rep. Marjorie Margolies (D), to win an open-seat primary in Pennsylvania's 13th District," Roll Call reports.

"Margolies started the race as the odds-on favorite to succeed Rep. Allyson Y. Schwartz, who ran for governor. Margolies' name was still familiar to voters in the district thanks to her one term in Congress in the early 1990s, and she had ties to the Clinton dynasty as former first daughter Chelsea Clinton's mother-in-law -- making her appear to be a near lock for the nomination."
