Rebecca Warren Falls Short, Joe Gale Wins — With 96 percent of the state-wide vote in as of 11:45 p.m., May 21, Rebecca Warren is about 25,000 votes behind second place Christylee Peck who has about 337,000 in the Republican Superior Court primary.
Two seats are being contested for 10-year terms on the court which is the intermediate appellate court for most matters in the state.
In first place is establishment choice Megan King who has about 357,000 votes. Ms. King received a last minute endorsement form President Trump.
Somebody must have been nervous.
In better news, incumbent Joe Gale appears to be the top vote-getter in the GOP Montco Commissioner race at, unofficially, 16,233. Unfortunately his brother Sean is about 1,649 votes behind second place Fred Conner who ended up, unofficially, with 16,114 votes in the five man race. Dean Eisenberger got 14,454 votes and France W. Krazalkovich got 5,909 votes
Conner was the establishment favorite.
Gale and Conner will face on Nov. 5 Democrat incumbents Val Arkoosh and Kenneth E. Lawrence, Jr., who has been dogged by allegations of committing a rape.
The top-votegetter of the minority party is guaranteed a seat on the board.
In best news, though, Republican Fred Keller crushed Democrat Marc Friedenberg to win a special election to Pennsylvania’s 12 District Congressional seat that was strangely vacated by Tom Marino in January.
Keller got, unofficially, 78,844 votes to Friedenberg’s 33,244. votes.
