HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The votes are in and newly-elected state representatives are ready to get to work.

Special elections were held on Tuesday in parts of south-central and southeastern Pennsylvania to fill a pair of House seats left vacant by the resignations of Republican incumbents.

In the 87th District in Cumberland County, Republican Greg Rothman beat Democrat Bob Charles. Pennlive.com reports Rothman walked away with nearly 60 percent of the vote.

In Delaware County’s 161st District, the Delaware County Daily Times reports Democrat Leanne Krueger-Braneky beat Republican labor leader Paul Mullen.

Three more special elections are scheduled in Philadelphia districts next week to fill vacancies left by the resignations of three Democratic House members.
