Paul Drucker, the Democratic candidate for state Representative in the 157th District, fell to incumbent Republican Warren Kampf yesterday by a 1,002 vote margin.
A former state Rep., Drucker told Patch this would be his last run for the seat.
On November 7, he released the following statement, conceding defeat:
It was a hard fought campaign, but we came up short. I am proud of the campaign we built and hope Representative Kampf will work in Harrisburg to represent all of the district. This fight is not over and the work continues to make sure our schools have the funding they need, that women’s rights are respected, and that gas companies are paying their fair share.
Despite tonight’s loss, I would like to thank all of the voters who turned out to support me today. I would also like to thank my family, my campaign team and all of the volunteers who worked so tirelessly for our campaign.
I am proud to have fought for my community as both an elected official and a private citizen, and I have no plans to stop. Is it an honor to serve this community.
