SD-32: Stefano Knocks Off Kula in GOP Pickup

Senator-elect Pat Stefano

Republicans have scored a pickup in the State Senate.

After a contentious and at times bitter race, Republican businessman Pat Stefano defeated state Rep. Deb Kula for the seat of retiring Sen. Rich Kasunic (D-Fayette).

With 86% of precincts reporting, Stefano led Kula by over 8,500 votes – 58% to 42%.

Stefano declared victory and Kula conceded the race around 10:30 Tuesday.

The win, in trending-red southwestern Pa., means the Senate GOP caucus will get larger and get more conservative.
