Wojcik Beats Eagen in Upset for Democratic Commonwealth Court Nomination

michael-wojcikIt is one of the bigger upsets of primary Election Night 2015.

Michael Wojcik will be the Democratic nominee for a seat on the PA Commonwealth Court.

Wojick, the Solicitor for Allegheny County, defeated attorney Todd Eagen who was endorsed by the Democratic Party at their winter meeting.

Eagen ran his own TV ad and even had Senator Bob Casey declare his support on the eve on the election, but it didn’t make a difference.

With 99% of precincts in, Wojcik has 323,772 votes (53.54%) while Eagen has 280,972 (46.46%).

Republican nominee Paul Lalley ran unopposed.

  1. Another example of Jim Burn’s failed leadership – another statewide endorsement that he and his cronies fail to carry.

    Democratic State Committee needs to clean house … soon … we have to elect the Democratic Supreme Court slate, Judge Dubow and now Attorney Wojcik this NOVEMBER … we have to begin preparing for 2016 to elect a Democratic President, recruit and elect Democratic row officers (treasurer, attorney general) and re-elect our auditor general, Eugene DePasquale, and, of course we have to elect Joe Sestak and retire Pat Toomey.

    To start the process and put us on the road to success, we need to fire Jim Burn … NOW!

  2. How about the Democrats give the Republicans all 9 seats on the Commonwealth Court? Oh wait. We just did. Good one.
