BREAKING: Democrats Block GOP From Taking Pennsylvania House

Press Releases

WASHINGTON — Pennsylvania Democrats won all three critical special election seats in Districts 32, 34, and 35 – stopping Republicans from taking full control of the chamber. In the face of historic headwinds, Democrats flipped the Pennsylvania House in November and won a net gain of 12 seats, but three vacancies left the chamber vulnerable to a GOP takeover as Republicans were working to undermine the will of the voters.

“Building off of our growing momentum following a historic midterm, Democrats have notched three special election wins that will stop Republicans from taking control of the state House,” said DLCC interim President Heather Williams. “Voters rejected the radical policies of the Pennsylvania GOP, and with these wins, the DLCC and Pennsylvania Democrats stand ready to hold these MAGA extremists accountable at every turn. Congratulations to Joe McAndrew, Abigail Salisbury, and Matt Gergely, who will ensure their constituents have a voice in Harrisburg and that the issues that matter most to voters are front and center.”

The DLCC is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures. Last year, the DLCC defied the odds by not losing any state legislative majorities, flipping four key chambers, and creating four new Democratic trifectas – the best midterm year for the party in power since at least 1934. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and pass the policies that have the biggest impact on Americans’ day-to-day lives.
