The Democrats have scored important victories in statewide row offices.
Democratic hopeful Eugene DePasquale (D-York) faced a tough election against GOP hopeful John Maher (R-Allegheny), but was able to hold him off 49-46 as it stands as of 12:45 am.
Both representatives in the PA State House had a hard fought campaign for Auditor General. Maher scored endorsements across the state from multiple newspapers, with most highlighting his willingness to get in and get the job done. DePasquale’s future aspirations seemed to have watered down some of the support he got from the race.
State Treasurer Rob McCord also won for the Democrats, winning re-election over GOP hopeful Diana Irey Vaughan, a county commissioner for Washington County 52-43 as of 12:45 am.
“I commend John Maher and Diana Irey Vaughan for running vigorous and spirited campaigns over this past year,” said PA GOP Spokesperson Rob Gleason. “Each of them are tremendous public servants and I applaud them for tirelessly championing our shared values to the Pennsylvania electorate.”
