Report: Democrats to Make Abortion ‘Centerpiece’ of Pennsylvania Supreme Court Race

Katherine Hamilton 28 Aug 2023

Democrats are “preparing to pour millions of dollars” into framing the upcoming Pennsylvania Supreme Court election around abortion.

A seat on the state Supreme Court is in play this November, and pro-abortion Democrat and current Superior Court judge Dan McCaffery is going up against moderate Republican and president judge of the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas Carolyn Carluccio.

“The major showdown over a state Supreme Court seat signals that these once little-noticed elections have become expensive, high-stakes affairs after the fall of Roe v. Wade last year,” Politico reported on Sunday.

According to Politico, a pro-Democrat super PAC is moving to “make abortion the centerpiece of the campaign,” and abortion giant Planned Parenthood is already getting involved in the race. Democrats in the state are reportedly hoping Pennsylvania will be a repeat of this year’s Wisconsin Supreme Court election, in which a pro-abortion liberal judge won after they made abortion central to the race.

“Both parties will be watching the state Supreme Court race in Pennsylvania as a bellwether in a key battleground state ahead of the 2024 presidential election. For Democrats, the outcome will offer clues about whether voters are still mobilized by abortion more than a year after Roe v. Wade was struck down — and if the party can keep outrunning President Joe Biden’s low approval ratings,” according to the report. “For Republicans, it will demonstrate whether they can finally crack the code on how to navigate the post-Roe world.”

Democrats’ 4-2 control of the seven-seat state Supreme Court is not at stake this year. However, Democrats are contending the election will “help set the stage for upcoming races that could tip the balance of power” because three Democrats on the court are up for retention in 2025, the report states.
