Election Balances Congressional Delegation

Pennsylvania’s new Congressional delegation will look different than the delegation that came out of the 2016 election. Two years ago, with comfortably gerrymandered congressional lines, Republicans enjoyed a 13-to-5 advantage over Democrats among PA's 18 U.S. House seats. One seat flipped in a special election, and a court-ordered redrawing of the boundaries triggered even more changes. Coming out of Tuesday's vote, the delegation will be 9-to-9. F&M College political analyst Dr. Terry Madonna says the GOP did hold two key seats in the 1st and 10th districts.
