At least two legislative candidates, one a Republican and the other a Democrat, are notifying voters via direct mail they're running write-in campaigns on the Democratic ballot in Tuesday's primary.In the 40th Legislative District, State Rep. John Maher, a Republican from Upper St. Clair, is seeking a write-in nomination on the Democratic ticket, where no Democrat has filed.
Greg Parks of Pleasant Hills, the Democrat, is seeking his party's nomination in the 37th Senatorial District. No Democrat filed for the office for a chance to succeed State Sen. John Pippy, R-Moon Township, next year for a four-year term. Republicans in the race are Sue Means, State Rep. Mark Mustio and D. Raja.
A Senatorial write-in candidate, to be included on the November ballot, must receive at least 500 votes, equal to the number of valid signatures on a nominating petition.
The 37th Senatorial District includes parts of southern and western Allegheny County, plus Peters Township in Washington County.
A write-in candidate for General Assembly must receive at least 300 write-in votes to be listed as a party nominee on the November ballot.
The district includes Upper St. Clair and part of Bethel Park in Allegheny County and Peters Township in Washington County.
Complete write-in results from the two counties may not be available Tuesday night with unofficial primary returns.
Maher, who is unopposed for the 40th District legislative seat on the GOP ticket, is also running for the Republican nomination as auditor general against Frank Pinto of Harrisburg. The winner of that contest will face Democrat Eugene DePasquale of West Manchester, York County, who is unopposed in the primary.
