HARRISBURG (AP) – Republican Carolyn Carluccio and Democrat Dan McCaffery won their parties’ primaries for an open seat on the PA Supreme Court. The two will face each other in the fall election for the court, which is at the center of cases dealing with abortion, guns, and elections. Each nominee won a two-way primary race. Carluccio defeated Patricia McCullough, a Commonwealth Court judge who lost a primary for a high court seat in 2021, while McCaffery defeated Deborah Kunselman, a colleague on the Superior Court. In lower court races, Republican Megan Martin and Democrat Matt Wolf each won a two-way primary for an open seat on the Commonwealth Court while Democrats Jill Beck and Timika Lane captured the nomination in a three-way race for two open seats on the Superior Court, which hears appeals of civil and criminal cases from county courts.
