Take Action Pennsylvania

Flip: Senate (Fetterman), Holds: PA-17 (Deluzio), PA-7 (Wild), PA-8 (Cartwright)

Pennsylvania represents the single biggest opportunity that Democrats have to flip a Senate seat in 2022. Progressive Lt Governor John Fetterman won the May 17 primary with poinnts to spare, earning nearly 60% of the vote. As of now, his opponent is unkown since oddball medical theorist Mehmet Oz and hedge fund CEO David McCormick were so close that a recount is highly likely.

In the U.S. House, PA07, incumbent and abortion rights advocate Susan Wild will face Republican Lisa Scheller, who is short on policy but long on “replacement theory.” In PA 08, incumbent Democrat Matt Cartwright will battle former Rick Santorum intern Jim Bognet, who is blessed by Trump and his GOP minions. And in the open seat in PA 17, Democrat Chris Deluzio, a U.S. Navy veteran who heads the University of Pittsburgh cyber policy center, will face Jeremy Shaffer, who supports SCOTUS overturning Roe v. Wade.
