Republicans Gain Veto-Proof State Senate, House GOP Adds 3 More Members

The results of the November 8 election gave Senate Republicans three new members from Cambria, Dauphin and Erie counties and a veto-proof majority.  The 34 to 16 Republican majority is the largest GOP majority in 70 years.

House Republicans won 4 more seats in Beaver, Fayette, Washington and Westmoreland counties, but lost one in Monroe County.  The 122 to 81 Republican majority is the largest GOP majority in the House since 1958.

In Pennsylvania, Republican Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by 64,000 votes out of 5.7 million votes cast for President, about 1,000 votes in each county, and incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Pat Toomey beat Katie McGinty by 96,000 votes.

But, Democrats, by wider margins, won all 3 the statewide row offices-- Josh Shapiro for  Attorney General, Eugene DePasquale was re-elected Auditor General and Joseph Torsella as State Treasurer.

There were no changes in party alignment in Pennsylvania’s U.S. House delegation.  It remains at 13 to 5.
