The Republicans held the state Senate seat in Pennsylvania that I mentioned yesterday, as the Associated Press reports:

HARRISBURG, Pa.--Republican state Rep. David Argall (AR'-guhl) is the apparent winner of a special election to replace Sen. James Rhoades, an eastern Pennsylvania lawmaker who died in a car crash last October.

Unofficial returns show Argall with 62.4 percent of the vote to 37.6 percent for Democrat Stephen Lukach Jr. in balloting Tuesday in the 29th District.

Argall had 20,786 votes and Lukach had 12,551.
