Sessions Statement on PA-12 Special Election


Washington- National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) issued the following statement on the results of today’s special election in Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District:


“Tonight’s result was undoubtedly disappointing, but we will take the lessons learned from this campaign and move forward in preparation for November. This hard-fought race gave us an early preview of what Democrats will attempt to do in the fall in order to survive. They will steer clear of publicly campaigning with President Obama and Speaker Pelosi, distance themselves from the Democratic agenda, and attempt to co-opt Republican positions on the issues.”


“The bottom line is that the makeup of the House remains the same and our goal of winning back the majority in November has not changed. In just four days, we will have another election in another Democrat-held seat that stands to change the makeup of the House.”
