HARRISBURG (AP) – PA House Democrats have made some gains in the chamber. Some even see hope they could retake the majority once smoke clears from the election that began with their party 23 seats behind the Republican majority. After Tuesday’s election, Democrats are facing a couple of potential losses in western Pennsylvania and one in Wilkes-Barre. Republicans are trailing in key races outside Philadelphia and others near Harrisburg, the Poconos, and the Pittsburgh area. Republicans hold the chamber 113 to 90. That means Democrats would need a net pickup of 12 to retake the majority for the first time in 12 years.
