Primary voters in Pennsylvania's 3rd Congressional District will decide whether the longtime dealer will stay in the race for a U.S. House seat. Kelly, who operates Chevrolet-Cadillac, Hyundai and Kia stores in Butler, Pa., is one of six Republicans competing for his party's nod in the general election.
That Cadillac store helped get Kelly into the race. He decided to run after GM told him it would pull the Cadillac franchise. Kelly got a reinstatement offer from GM in March.
If Kelly wins, he'll compete against the incumbent Democrat, U.S. Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper.
Another car candidate also is on today's Pennsylvania ballot. U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, a former dealer who has been in Congress since 2001, is running unopposed in the Republican primary in the 9th District.
