The control of Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives will be determined by a special election on Tuesday to fill a vacant state representative seat. Democrat Lindsay Powell and Republican Erin Connolly Autenreith are the candidates. If Powell wins, Democrats will maintain their slight majority in the chamber. However, if Autenreith wins, Republicans will regain their majority, which they lost last year. The outcome of the election will not affect the divided state government, with a Democratic governor and Republican-controlled Senate. Powell is focused on continuing the Democrats’ legislative agenda, while Autenreith prioritizes education, particularly school vouchers.
