Southeast takes center stage as Democrats make big General Assembly gains, though Republicans hold majorities

Riding discontent in the Philadelphia suburbs, Democrats picked up 16 seats between the Pennsylvania House and Senate on Tuesday, besting nine incumbents and breaking the GOP Senate supermajority in a big night for the party that had been whittled down to historic lows in both chambers.
