2 Republicans Win Seats On Pa. Superior Court

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Two Republicans have won seats to the Pennsylvania Superior Court but two other open seats are too close to call.

Allegheny County Judge Judy Olson and Tioga County lawyer Sallie Mundy both won seats to the court in Tuesday’s general election.

The AP has not called winners for two other open seats because the candidates are separated by less than 2 percentage points and uncounted provisional ballots could affect the outcome.

The next two candidates with the most votes were Chester County Judge Paula Ott, a Republican, and Philadelphia County judge Anne Lazarus, a Democrat.

In all, nine judges and lawyers were competing for four open seats on the Superior Court. The court handles most appeals from criminal and civil cases in county courts.
