Fred Keller sworn into House of Representatives

June 4, 2019

WASHINGTON (AP) — Pennsylvania has a new congressman.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday night swore in Republican Rep. Fred Keller. The Snyder County resident represents the 12th District, which encompasses a heavily Republican swath of central and northern Pennsylvania.

Keller last month won a special election to replace Republican Tom Marino, who resigned in January.

Keller beat Democrat Marc Friedenberg and ran with the support of President Donald Trump.

The two-year term runs through 2020.
