Pa. Senate to swear in Jim Brewster to fill western Pa. seat

Senate President Pro Tempore Jake Corman on Tuesday announced via Twitter that the state Senate will convene on Wednesday to swear in Democratic incumbent Sen. Jim Brewster as the senator for the 45th senatorial district.

“It is time to move past the 2020 election and work together to deal with challenges that lie ahead,” said Common Cause Pennsylvania executive director Khalif Ali. “We’re facing a continuing COVID-19 pandemic, racial injustice, an increasing budget deficit and people are struggling to make ends meet. Pennsylvanians are suffering. Let’s move forward -- with a government that is ‘of the people, by the people’ and ‘for the people.’ Common Cause calls on our elected officials to demonstrate the type of leadership that will re-instill confidence in our democracy. Pennsylvanians deserve nothing less.”
