FAST FACTS ABOUT PENNSYLVANIA
- Pennsylvania is a critical swing state, but due to a long history of Republican gerrymandering, the Republicans hold large majorities of power in the state legislature.
Prior to the 2018 midterms, Republicans had a supermajority in the state senate, with 34 seats to Democrats 16 seats.
With help from Sister District volunteers, Democrats made great gains in November, and Republicans now have 28 seats to Democrats 21 seats, and there is one vacancy.
Flipping District 37 blue is critical for the Democrats in order to take back the chamber in 2020 prior to redistricting. When we flip this seat blue, Democrats will be just 4 seats away from flipping the chamber next year!
FAST FACTS ABOUT SD37
This is the first red-to-blue state legislative flip opportunity for Democrats this year.
This district is ready to flip blue. It is a district that Trump won by less than 6 points, and has been held by Republicans for years—but is trending our way.
93% of this district is within Conor Lamb’s congressional district. He flipped the congressional seat blue last year, and this year we can flip the state senate seat too.
