Voters also overwhelmingly supported Democrat Katie McGinty over incumbent Republican Pat Toomey in the race for U.S. Senate with 789 voting for McGinty and 692 for Toomey.
They also gave Democrat Steve Santarsiero their support for U.S. Congress with 857 votes to Republican Brian Fitzpatrick’s 648 votes. Santarsiero represents the borough in the state house of representatives in Harrisburg.
