Election Day 2018 was over one month ago, but questions are still swirling about the status of SD-38. Democrat Lindsey Williams defeated Republican Jeremy Shaffer by a razor thin margin to flip the GOP held state Senate seat in Western PA.
Republicans in the state have been questioning whether or not Williams meets the constitutional requirement that state senators be Pennsylvania residents for four years prior to the date of their election, WESA reports. Last week, Williams submitted nearly 100 pages of material to state Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati believing it provides sufficient proof that she is eligible to hold the seat.
This may lead to an interesting showdown between Republicans and Democrats in Harrisburg.
Should Lindsey Williams be seated in SD-38?
- Yes (64%)
- No (36%)
