Democrats Claim Victory In Swing State Legislative Special Election Democratic Rep.-elect Austin Davis carries election for Pennsylvania HD-35
 
Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee (DLCC) Executive Director Jessica Post celebrated state Representative-elect Austin Davis’s victory in the special election for Pennsylvania House District 35.
 
Davis, a lifelong McKeesport resident and Vice-Chair of the Allegheny County Democratic Committee, carried the Pittsburgh-area district winning over 70% of the vote. His vision for the district and his dedication to local issues like reducing crime, fostering job creation, fixing crumbling roads and bridges, supporting public schools and expanding Pre-K programs, and increasing drug treatment options resonated with his future constituents.
 
“Congratulations to Rep.-elect Austin Davis on his important win tonight,” said Post. “With recent court decisions deeming Pennsylvania’s congressional maps unconstitutional, it is critical that we continue to build Democratic strength in the Pennsylvania General Assembly ahead of 2020 redistricting. The DLCC is committed to the creation and implementation of fair legislative and congressional maps in Pennsylvania and in states across the country, and we look forward to winning back chamber majorities in 2018 to make that happen."
 
The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is the only organization exclusively committed to electing Democrats to state legislatures all over the country and winning Democratic control of chambers. For over two decades, the DLCC has been working with state legislative leaders to invest strategically in state programs, which has led to Democrats flipping 34 contested seats since Trump's inauguration. The DLCC is building on Democrats’ winning momentum and continues to lay the groundwork for substantial gains in 2018 in statehouses nationwide. State Democrats recently scored critical victories in Washington, Virginia, Oklahoma, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Florida, New York, New Hampshire, Georgia, and elsewhere, while also leading the resistance against the Trump administration’s extremist policies.
