Harris Wins PA Progressive Straw Poll
The Keystone Progress Summit took place in Pittsburgh this weekend to hold the first presidential straw poll for 2020.
A trio of Senators led the pack, all holding a sizable advantage over the rest of the ever growing Democratic field.
Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) finished in first with 26 votes. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) captured second place with 23 votes and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) followed closely behind with 21 votes.

“While the straw poll is not scientific, and it’s early in the election cycle, it’s clear progressives in Pennsylvania have favorites, and Kamala Harris winning shows her campaign is off to a great start,” said Dan Doubet, Executive Director of Keystone Progress.
The only other Democrat to crack double digits is Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH).
The weekend featured addresses from Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto, newly elected state Sen. Lindsey Williams (D-Allegheny) and Second Lady of Pennsylvania, Gisele Fetterman.
