If Democratic voters show up in the next week they could finally capture the Pennsylvania legislature.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, President Donald Trump’s popularity in the suburbs has also dragged Republican candidates down the ballot into losses.
“Democratic candidates and outside groups are outspending Republicans by a margin of more than three to one across the most competitive battleground districts, according to data from the ad-tracking firm Advertising Analytics. Democrats need a net gain of nine seats to win a majority,” said the report. “Republicans have a tighter grip on control of the state Senate, though Democrats are also spending heavily in their bid to flip the four seats necessary for an effective majority.”
