“I think Pennsylvania is going to be a real ground zero as we work to take back the U.S. House and, frankly, take back our democracy,” Perez said in an interview with WCAU.
Perez said that this year is the “year of the woman” pointing the the seven Democratic women who won Democratic primaries in the state.
“Women have been leading the resistance, women have been stepping up to run for office in remarkable numbers and women have been winning,” Perez said.
Of the seven races featuring Democratic women, four of them are ranked highly vulnerable in our Congressional vulnerability ratings.
Part of the change in Democrats fortunes in Pennsylvania is the court ordered redraw of the state’s Congressional map that shifted 11 of the state’s districts to be less Republican compared to previous statewide elections.
