Received this e-mail today from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party:
Republican Tom Marino will quit the US House next Wednesday to chase a fat corporate paycheck. His resignation will trigger a race to fill his position—the fourth special election of 2019!
Flipping Marino's seat won't be easy. Donald Trump won the district (PA-12) by double-digits, and it's been a GOP stronghold for generations.
But we've faced those odds before and won!Let's do just what Conor Lamb and PA Dems did last March: steal a special election against all the odds. Donate now to jumpstart our campaign.
By investing in the Special Election Victory Fund, you help win four open seats all across the state.
• US House, District 12 (Election Date TBD)
• PA Senate, District 37 (April 2)
• PA House, District 114 (March 12)
• PA House, District 190 (March 12)
Every one of those special elections will bring us one vote closer to raising the wage, protecting healthcare, saving the environment, improving PA schools, and more.
