CAMBRIA COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — Tuesday’s election brought a wave of change for Cambria County.
Republicans Scott Hunt and Keith Rager are the new commissioner’s majority. While Democrat Tom Chernisky won re-election, his running mate BJ Smith lost. GOP party leaders say this vote could signal how voters will lean in next year’s election, from national to local races.
“Well yesterday I spent the entire day at several polls, and it was a common theme for all the voters is perhaps that I am not voting for Democrat. I’m just so upset with what’s going on in the country,” Cambria County Republican Chairwoman Jackie Kulback said.
