Megan King Leading For 2nd Superior Court Seat— It was mostly not a good night for Pennsylvania Republicans as they were swept in former GOP strongholds in Chester and Delaware counties, and obviously Montgomery County. One of the more troubling losses was the Delaware County District Attorney’s race were Kat Copeland fell to George Soros minion Jack Stollsteimer, 83,718 to 78,843 (unofficial totals).
Joe Gale’s bullet-voting scheme appears to have worked in Montco as he kept his minority county commissioner seat getting (unofficially) 73,106 votes to fellow Republican Fred Conner’s 67,349.
Joe has been a very fine minority county commissioner doing everything one would expect a minority county commissioner to do which is basically nothing.
And now he can do nothing again for four more years.
It would have been better for all, including himself, if he had used some of his apparently large advertising budget to put Ken Lawrence in the crosshairs rather than shoot it all at Conner.
Lawrence ended up, unofficially, with 122,492 votes. Top vote-getter in the commissioner race was Val Arkoosh at 125,262.
Megan King is a Republican bright spot as she is leading for the second contested seat on state Superior Court. The Pennsylvania Department of State’s website has been stuck at “8,799 Out of 9,159 Districts (96.07%) Reporting” since about 2 a.m. The non-reporting districts include 94 in Philadelphia, 26 in York County and all 155 districts in Northhampton County. Mrs. King’s tally stands at 1,202,198. Democrat Daniel McCaffery is leading with 1,210,242 votes. In third place is Democrat Amanda Green-Hawkins with 1,173,899 votes. In fourth place is Republican Christylee Peck with 1,119,731 votes.
Mrs. King’s husband, Richard, says it may be a “day or two” before they know for sure.
Two seats with 10-year terms were up for election on the court which is the intermediate appellate court for most matters in the state.
Oh, and the insidious Marcy’s Law amendment to the state constitution would have passed easily — it was ahead 1,599,565 to 567,117 as of our last check — but the state Supreme Court has fortunately ruled the votes would not be counted.
