Received this e-mail today from the Pennsylvania Democratic Party:
On Tuesday, Republican state senator Mike Folmer was arrested on serious charges. Yesterday, Folmer joined the long line of PA Republicans who have recently resigned in disgrace.
Now, Democrats can elect a senator who's actually worthy of our commonwealth. Chip in to jumpstart efforts to flip Folmer's seat in a special election.
There are three things you need to know about the landscape of this race and the PA Senate.
ONE: Dems are just three seats short of a majority in the PA Senate. A special election win will put us within inches of flipping the chamber.
TWO: Special elections typically fly under the radar. This race will be won by turning votes out with a strong ground game, and your donations directly power that.
THREE: Neither party has a clear-cut candidate yet, so we can give ours a headstart by ramping up campaign activities today!
