Lots of choices and races for Pennsylvania primary voters

Under Pennsylvania's new congressional map - which was drawn by the state Supreme Court after the court ruled the old map was unconstitutionally gerrymandered - the 6th District includes all of Chester County and part of Berks County.

A special election to fill the remainder of former state Rep. Matt Baker's term in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, as well as several state and national races, will appear on Tuesday's primary election ballot in Bradford County.

The GOP has been hurt by other factors as well, including the decision by several Republicans to resign or retire rather than seek reelection. Pat Meehan and Ryan Costello, are not seeking reelection in districts that would have been competitive even without the new maps.

The two districts have been without representation since late December, when Gov. Scott Walker appointed incumbents Frank Lasee and Keith Ripp, both Republicans, to posts in his administration.

Platt, the Democratic consultant, disagreed. All told, there are 84 candidates on primary ballots, the most since 1984, and there are seven open seats, the most since 1976, when Pennsylvania had 25 seats in the U.S. House. "It speaks to the veracity of the way people feel about needing change in government, specifically at the federal level".
