Democrats Brendan Boyle and Mike Driscoll win open seats for the U.S. and Pennsylvania House of Representatives.
Pennsylvania voters will be going to the polls in less than three weeks, and some local races are hotly contested.
Democratic ward leaders in the 173rd Legislative District are unanimously behind Mike Driscoll in the May 20 primary.
State Rep. Brendan Boyle last week held his first major fundraiser in his campaign for the 13th Congressional District seat.
Thanks to a tie-breaking vote by state Supreme Court Chief Justice and Rhawnhurst resident Ron Castille, new boundaries for state House and Senate districts are kaput. Denny O’Brien’s old House seat likely will stay put, spurring a crowded contest.
Bill Rubin, the Democratic candidate in the 10th Councilmanic District, enjoys campaigning door-to-door in the various neighborhoods of the district.
State Rep. Dennis O’Brien is favored to be elected to City Council on Nov. 8, which would leave his 169th Legislative District seat vacant.
