JIM WERTZ DECLARES VICTORY IN SD-49 DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY

Erie, PA — Tonight, State Senate candidate Jim Wertz officially declared victory in the Democratic Primary for PA Senate District 49. Wertz will move on to the general election in a race that will decide which party controls the PA Senate in Harrisburg.

“To everyone who voted, donated, knocked doors, made phone calls, showed up to an event, or told a friend or family member about this campaign, I am eternally grateful for your support. Tonight, we cleared the first turn in this long race to November,” said Wertz. “From the beginning, this campaign has been about protecting our rights and lifting up working people across Erie County. Our message was heard loud and clear, and I am honored to be the Democratic nominee for State Senate. Together, we can win this race and send someone to Harrisburg from Erie to defend reproductive rights, restore strong public schools, and build a future with dignity and respect for working people.”

Wertz will face two-term incumbent Republican State Senator Dan Laughlin in the general election which will take place on Tuesday, November 5th.
