Pennsylvania state Rep. Bob Mensch easily won yesterday's special state Senate election.
Our friends at the Republican State Leadership Committee say that Mensch's victory is the 18th Republicans have enjoyed in special elections since November, leading to a net gain of four seats.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
