3 House races in Philadelphia suburbs remain too close to call

Three Pennsylvania state House races in the Philadelphia suburbs remain too close to call, with small vote margins separating the candidates.

In two of the contests that were being sorted out on Wednesday, a Democratic and a Republican incumbent state representative both hold small leads on their challenges.

Democratic state Rep. Leanne Krueger-Braneky of Delaware County is clinging to a 240-vote lead over Republican challenger Patti Rodgers Morrisette.

In neighboring Chester County, Republican Rep. Dan Truitt ended election night with a 78-vote margin over West Chester Mayor Carolyn Comitta, a Democrat.

The closest uncalled race is in Bucks County, where just 28 votes give Democrat Perry Warren Jr. a lead over Republican Ryan Gallagher.

They’re seeking a seat that opened up when Rep. Steve Santarsiero opted to run for Congress.
