- Deluzio is serving his first term in Congress. An Iraq War veteran, voting rights attorney, and union organizer, he received a B.S. degree with merit from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis.
In Pennsylvania’s fall 2023 elections, Democrats captured an important state supreme court seat, defeated many Moms4Liberty school board candidates, and won impressively in many county and local elections. Bute the 2024 election will be more challenging.
The urban-rural divide remains a defining feature, with cities like Philadelphia and Pittsburgh leaning left, while rural areas tilt right. Navigating this ideological chasm will be a key challenge for candidates vying for congressional seats.
While voters favor Democratic positions on abortion and schools, President Biden is far less popular. If the past is any guide, the 2024 Presidential electorate will be less policy driven than the “off year” voters in 2023. Issues such as inflation immigration, and the Israel-Hamas war will depress Democratic votes, as will the presence of third-party candidates.
