Congressional Race Updates

Joe Sestak (PA-07), Patrick Murphy (PA-08), Chris Carney (PA-10) and Allyson Schwartz (PA-13) will retain their seats. It looks like Schwartz will gain a homestate buddy in the line for the congressional ladies room. In the 3rd congressional district, with 83% of the statewide vote in, Democrat Kathy Dahlkemper has a 52/48% lead over incumbent Republican Phil English. In the 12th, endangered Democrat incumbent John Murtha is holding on to his seat. Republican Charlie Dent is likely to keep his seat in the 15th district. The 11st district (incumbent Democrat Paul Kanjorski and Republican challenger Lou Barletta) is too close to call.

In the State House, Tim Briggs, Democratic candidate for the open seat in the 149th district, is ahead 57/42%, with over 13,000 votes reported. Bryan Lentz looks to retain the 161st district. Other races are too close to call.
