According to the AP:
Sixty-one incumbents faced primary challenges Tuesday, the most since 1980. At least 14 were defeated, and six other races were too close to call early Wednesday.
Swept from office were the Senate's No. 1 Republican — President Pro Tempore Robert C. Jubelirer — and Majority Leader David J. Brightbill. It's the first time in more than 40 years that any Pennsylvania legislative leader was voted out of office.
Rush discussed the situation on his radio show today. He called it a revolution. It started in Virginia, then in North Carolina, then in Ohio, and now in Pennsylvania. Conservatives are taking back the party, one election at a time.
It's hard to beat an incumbant, but several were sent packing by qualified candidates who wish to see change in Harrisburg. It's been a long time since the entrenched politicians have realized that they were sent to serve, not to take, take, take.
