Legislative Elections Update:

HD-20: Republican nominee Aaron Kaufer is challenging his Democratic opponent Eileen Cipriani to a debate.

“Debates are vital in having a well-informed voting populace,” Kaufer said. “This election represents two visions for our area, and I look forward to the opportunity of discussing my vision and what I hope to accomplish. I am confident that the voters of the 120th district are looking for new solutions to the issues our community faces today.”

HD-39: State Democrats and the Tom Wolf-affiliated PAC Fresh Start are stepping up their efforts on behalf of their nominee Lisa Stout-Bashioum.

“I’m a fresh candidate, part of a grassroots movement to send Rep. Saccone and the rest of Team Corbett packing,” Stout-Bashioum said. “I’ve personally spoken to thousands of voters, and people want something more out of their government than what they’ve gotten the last four years. I’m looking forward to giving their voices a much-needed boost once I’m elected.”
