Philadelphia Republicans came to the polls in droves yesterday, casting more ballots in a primary than ever before. Republicans cast 43,000 ballots in our city, more than the sum of the last two presidential primaries combined.
“Republicans in Philadelphia are growing and energized,” said Joe DeFelice, Chairman of the Philadelphia Republican Party. “We have over four thousand voters who switched from being Democrats this year. We more than doubled the number of ballots cast compared to the last election cycles. Despite the negative media narrative, our national ticket will over-perform in Philadelphia and our other major cities. The GOP is on the rise in this city.”
