Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairwoman Nancy Patton Mills issued the following statement:
“Tonight Pennsylvania resoundingly rejected the Republican agenda of stolen health care, tax breaks for millionaires, anti-immigrant rhetoric, and the violent use of golf spikes. We won tonight not only because the Republicans’ agenda of stripping Americans of their health care and giving tax breaks to millionaires is wrong, but because Democrats organized, knocked on doors, talked to neighbors, and most importantly, voted.
“Make no mistake about tonight — Pennsylvania Democrats are a force to be reckoned with. We have roared back into the governor’s mansion and re-elected Governor Wolf. We have re-elected Senator Bob Casey for six more years in DC. We’ve picked up Congressional seats and helped the Democrats retake the U.S. House of Representatives. We’ve retaken seats in the State House and have ended the Republicans’ supermajority in the State Senate. Republicans should be on notice after tonight.
“I want to thank each and every candidate who ran under our Party’s banner this year. History will look back on each and every one of you as heroes who stepped up to save our democracy when it was most needed.”
