According to NPR’s prospective electoral map, Pennsylvania is still a toss-up state! This is surprising, given the surge in Dem registrations and voting in our part of the state, the myriad abuses of Donald Trump, the many demographic groups he has offended, and the popularity of Biden as formerly “Pennsylvania’s third Senator” and of course Obama’s Vice-President.
The duty of Chesco Dems is clear: to work even harder to help offset, in November, Trump-leaning counties! It doesn’t matter who wins Chester County; what matters is that Chester County does enough to help determine the statewide result. Whatever the national presidential result in November, Dems can’t afford not to win in PA, because control of the state’s House and Senate, and the future of our Dem incumbents, challengers to R incumbents, and candidates in non-incumbent races is at stake!
