Right now, Democrat Jack Panella has 51% of the vote in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court race that, in a convoluted way, could determine control of legislative redistricting. However, 74% of precincts have reports in Philadelphia (where Panella is taking 76% of the vote). Only 41% of precints have reported statewide. With Philadelphia mostly in, Republican Joan Orie Melvin could have the edge.
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.
