Results of June 2, 2020 Primary Election
East & West Bradford (nine precincts)
Voters in East and West Bradford turned out in huge numbers for the Presidential Primary, indicating – with enthusiasm – that they have a strong interest in electing Joe Biden the 46th President of the United States, marking Donald Trump a one-term failure. Voters also want to re-elect Rep. Chrissy Houlahan to the US House (retaining a majority) and Rep. Christina Sappey to the PA State Legislature, flipping majority control there. The enthusiasm was evident as we crushed the Republicans in turnout across our nine precincts – Democratic turnout ranged from 47% – 60% with an average of 53.02%, while Republicans turnout ranged from 29% – 35%, with an average of 33.36%. Let’s keep that Blue Wave rolling in November!
We also see that voters now understand the importance of having a Democratic State Attorney General to protect residents from heartless, unfair and often ridiculous Republican policies coming from the current White House that affect our citizens – and to provide equal and fair justice to everyone. And of holding State Row Offices for the Treasurer and Auditor General to protect state resources and residents, and so are proud to again place Josh Shapiro (AG) and Joe Torsella (Treasurer) on the ballot along with Nina Ahmad for Auditor General.
