PA Gov



We need to hold this seat.

Josh Shapiro



Will protect the right to vote by championing legislation that protects and expands voting access.

Has defended reproductive health care rights as attorney general and will continue to as governor.

Will work to grow Pennsylvania’s economy by lowering costs and creating good-paying jobs.

Doug Mastriano


Participated in the January 6 Capitol insurrection.

Promoted Islamaphobic content on his Facebook page and made birtherist claims against President Obama.

As a state senator, made numerous attempts to illegally overturn the Pennsylvania election results in 2020.

PA House





We need to make gains in this chamber.

Pennsylvania Democrats flipped 11 seats in 2018 but suffered a setback in 2020, losing three seats. However, the new state house maps present many more opportunities than last decade’s Republican-gerrymandered maps and should provide Democrats with a viable path to pick up the 12 seats needed to win a majority in November.

HD-3: Rep. Ryan Bizzarro (D)

HD-18: Laurie Smith (D)

HD-26: Paul Friel (D)

HD-30: Arvind Venkat (D)

HD-33: Mandy Steele (D)

HD-82: Paul Takac (D)

HD-118: James Haddock (D)

HD-119: Vito Malacari (D)

HD-129: Johanny Cepeda-Freytiz (D)

HD-142: Mark Moffa (D)

HD-144: Brian Munroe (D)

HD-160: Catherine Spahr (D)

PA Senate





We need to make gains in this chamber.

Pennsylvania Democrats have flipped five seats and broken a Republican supermajority in the state senate over the last two elections. While Democrats are just five seats away from a majority in the chamber, the state senate’s new district map presents limited opportunities for Democrats to flip the chamber in the short term. Democrats will need to protect vulnerable incumbents and make marginal gains by winning competitive races in 2022.

SD-38: Sen. Lindsey Williams (D)

SD-44: Sen. Katie Muth (D)
