  1. ZB, I assume you have no real knowledge base to back up your belief that Dems will win Killion’s House seat considering:

    1. Its one of the more Republican leaning House seats in SE PA as far as registration.

    2. The Dem candidate for that seat has raised next to nothing

    3. Its likely there will be special election held to fill the vacancy this summer. Dem turnout for specials is not nearly as good as Republican’s in suburban Philly.

    $. In the Primary two days ago, the Republican candidate for the House seat earned 4,000 more votes than his Democrat opponent

  2. Great job, Tom. It was an honor working on your campaign. AND it will be an honor to work on your victorious re-election in November. This time, the Democrats couldn’t throw in a carpetbagger and win.

  3. I will say congrats to you Tom Killion is to win the special election and I think for the Democrats will win your state house seat in 2016.

  4. No surprise here. Seasoned legislator versus third tier candidate. Sad thing is that the Dem gets to come back in November to get his head handed to him…again.
