Pennsylvania Republicans sweep special elections, deliver nearly 20-point swing in Clinton-won suburban district
WASHINGTON – State Republicans continue to win in every corner of the country. Yesterday’s special elections in Pennsylvania, including a district where Hillary Clinton won by 9% in 2016 (a nearly 20-point swing in favor of Republicans), show the momentum remains on our side. Out of three special elections held for the Pennsylvania state House last night, Republicans emerged victorious in all three races.
Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) President Austin Chambers released the following statement:
”Republican energy in the Keystone State is electric after winning all three special elections held in the commonwealth yesterday. We were not only able to win seats that President Trump previously won, but also ones Hillary Clinton won, too. Last night’s wins were critical, but they continue to paint a bigger picture as we move towards November – Democrats continue to spend, but Republicans keep winning. It’s pretty simple – from Connecticut to Texas to Kentucky, Republicans can win anywhere. Democrats had high hopes for winning everything this year – turns out they’re just losing everything.”
The RSLC invested $200,000 in these special elections in Pennsylvania. Democrats spent nearly $1 million and lost all three races last night. The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee’s (DLCC) “flip everything” campaign is continuing to prove their scattered strategy is setting Democrats up to “lose everything” in 2020.
Yesterday’s Pennsylvania sweep reaffirms that Republicans can win anywhere in the country. Just three months into 2020, state Republicans have delivered victories in deep-blue Connecticut, the suburbs of Houston and Philadelphia, and in Kentucky, where Republicans delivered the first legislative flip of the year – all despite unprecedented liberal spending.
