For 24 of the past 28 years, including the last 12, Republicans have had the majority in the state house.
“I think voters are ready for a change,” said Rep. Leanne Krueger (D-Delaware County).
State Rep. Krueger is the first woman to chair the House Democratic Campaign Committee and the architect of the big blue upset that put Democrats back on top.
“It means that we can finally run an agenda on the state house floor that’s responsive to what Pennsylvanians want and need,” Krueger (D-Delaware County) added. “I think voters rejected extremism in all its forms last week.”
Democrats insist that voters sent a clear message to Republicans.
