There’s much more to Pennsylvania’s primary election next Tuesday, May 16, than municipal and county races. Democratic Control of the Pennsylvania House hangs in the balance with the special election to fill the 163rd Legislative District seat vacated by former Rep. Mike Zabel (D-Delaware). Zabel resigned from his seat after facing multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
Democrats flipped the House last November and regained the majority for the first time since 2009. However, it’s only a one seat margin that they gained following two special elections in February.
