U.S. Rep. Thomas Marino, R-Cogan Station, swept to victory Tuesday night in his re-election to the 10th Congressional District seat.
In unofficial results, Marino, a first-term House member, held off challenger Phil Scollo.
The Pike County Democrat, a business consultant and former Wall Street employee, apparently was unable to convince voters in the largely Republican district that change was needed.
U.S. Rep. Thomas A. Marino, R-Cogan Station, speaks to supporters at the Holiday Inn in Williamsport Tuesday night after most results are in.
Marino captured nearly every one of the 15 counties he represented, with the exception of Monroe County.
According to unofficial election figures, he grabbed 72.2 percent of the vote in Lycoming County.
Marino also took at least 66 percent of the vote in nearly every other county.
Lackawanna County was close, with Marino receiving 52.4 percent of the vote to Scollo's 47.6 percent, according to unofficial figures.
Scollo managed 54 percent of the vote in Monroe County.
Marino said he felt good about the response he received.
"I thank the constituents for their support," Marino said late Tuesday night. "We received a lot of support from Democrats, and we thank them for that. I represent all the people in the 10th District."
Marino said he is anxious to get back to Washington and put forth efforts to downsize the government, keep taxes low and whittle away at the debt.
He said he wants to work with Democrats in Congress.
"It has to work both ways," he added.
Scollo said his campaign "fought the good fight."
"We got a late start," he said. "I am overwhelmed by the amount of support throughout the district. We didn't leave anything on the table."
Scollo said he looks forward to spending time with his family and decompressing.
However, he said he won't give up fighting for the working families of Pennsylvania. He didn't rule out running for office again at some point.
