Bradford Wins Third Term in 70th District

Republican Jim Phillips challenged the incumbent Democrat for the Pennsylvania Representative District 70 seat

Update 12:18 a.m.

Democrat Matthew Bradford won re-election to the Pennsylvania General Assembly 70th District.

"It's heartening," Bradford said of the win. "I never take elections for granted. You don't take a lot of days off, you knock on a lot of doors and work really hard."

Bradford noted, however, that he didn't do it alone.

"I have a great staff that's worked hard for the last four years and I had a great campaign staff that worked very hard," he said.

This will be Bradford's third term, as he won the seat in the 2008 election.

Unofficial tallies in Montgomery County, with all 29 precincts reporting, showed Bradford with 20,442 votes to Republican challenger Jim Phillips' 11,086 votes.

In the North Penn area, Pennsylvania General Assembly District 70 covers Towamencin Township Wards 2-2, 2-3, and 3-3.
