Good day for Pa. Dems, but GOP keeps control

Updated:

Pennsylvania Democrats had a lot to cheer about after they swept all three statewide row offices up for grabs, kept control of a U.S. Senate seat, and eroded the GOP's majority in the state Senate.

Oh, and Barack Obama won Pennsylvania's 20 electoral votes in Tuesday's election on his way to winning a second term as president.

Sen. Bob Casey won a second 6-year term and Obama maintained the party's hold on a state that hasn't picked a Republican for president in nearly 25 years.

It wasn't a total washout for the GOP. They retained control of the state Legislature and picked up a U.S. House seat to command a 13-5 majority of the state's congressional delegation.
