Author: Marcel L. Groen, Chairman, Pennsylvania Democratic Party

In politics today, it’s rare that we find agreement on anything. But when it comes to Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race this year, everyone recognizes that Pat Toomey faces a stiff challenge.

There are two general reasons why: the facts and the fundamentals.

Republican operative Charlie Gerow tried to make the case in this publication last week that despite the headwinds, Toomey will be reelected in November.

EW Election Results Analysis

For the third consecutive Township Supervisor election, a Democratic Supervisor candidate has won a hard fought contest. The last 2 Supervisor races have been decided by less than a 1% margin. These small margins reinforce what we have been communicating to voters in recent elections – each vote matters!

Generally speaking, Democratic candidates did well in East Whiteland. Here are some of the highlights in the township.

  • All of the Supreme Court candidates outperformed their opponents and captured nearly 55% of the overall votes.
  • Court of Common Pleas judicial candidate Julia Malloy-Good won East Whiteland with nearly 54% of the vote.
  • County Commissioner Kathi Cozzone was the top vote getter for the County Commissioner’s race. It should be noted that this is the first time that a Democratic candidate for a county row office seat has won in East Whiteland.

These results reflect the hard work of our Committee people and volunteers. Once again we have demonstrated that grassroots efforts can make it a difference. Please consider getting involved as there are plenty ways to volunteer.
