Apart from the obvious prize of the Presidency, it was a good night for Republicans in Pennsylvania:
- Incumbent Republican U.S. Senator Pat Toomey resisted a spirited challenge from Democratic challenger Katie McGinty. Scoring his second two-percentage point victory in six years, Senator Toomey was victorious a race notable for the large amounts of out-of-state money spent on both campaigns.
- The Pennsylvania Senate achieved the 34-16 veto-proof majority that they long coveted. By flipping an open seat previously held by retiring Democratic Sen. John Wozniak (Cambria), as well as scoring defeats of incumbent Senators Rob Teplitz (Dauphin) by John DiSanto and Sean Wiley (Erie) by Jon Laughlin, Republicans in the Senate can override Gubernatorial vetoes simply by holding the party line.
- The Pennsylvania House Republicans similarly had an excellent night, increasing their majority by three seats.
- The Pennsylvania delegation to the US House of Representatives held true, with either incumbent wins or same-party victories for open seats.
- If Democrats can claim victory anywhere, it is in the clean sweep of state row offices. Democrat Josh Shapiro defeated Republican Sen. John Rafferty for Attorney General, Gene DePasquale maintained his office as Auditor General, and challenging Democrat Joe Torsella defeated incumbent Otto Voit for State Treasurer.
