PA Ballot Results – Shapiro, Fetterman, Leadbeter

Bloomsburg, PA – As of 1:45am all three state races on the ballot for Bloomsburg have been called.

Not all ballots have been counted, as all that remains are mail-in ballots which can take up to a week to complete. These ballots are not expected to change the results of the race.


Josh Shapiro (D) is the new governor of Pennsylvania. After serving two terms as the PA Attorney General, Josh Shapiro ran unopposed in primaries with his main platform being Healthcare reform, rural community infrastructure, and worker rights. He received immense bipartisan support and for his efforts currently stands at a 54.8% vote.


John Fetterman (D) is the newest senator representing PA for the U.S. Senate. After a long fought battle against Dr. Mehmet Oz, the democratic senator elect currently stands victorious with 49.9% of the vote. Fetterman ran on a platform of understanding the plight of working families in Pennsylvania and positioned himself as being a mouthpiece to vulnerable communities.


Robert Leadbeter (R) is the representative for Columbia County in the PA State House. He won the election with 67.7% of the vote with 10,061 total votes. Leadbeter drew ire from both the Political Science Student Association and the College Republicans on campus after accusing the students of favoritism during the student-held debate he did not attend. The official endorsement of Tom Anderson (I) by the College Republicans did not change the outcome of the election, but did send a powerful statement not soon to be forgotten by the organization.
