Pennsylvania has been a presidential battleground state + will continue to be one in 2024. It was one of the five key states ( with Michigan, Wisconsin, Arizona + Georgia) that swung from narrow margins for Trump in 2016 to narrow margins for Biden in 2020. The Democrats now hold the Governorship, both Senate seats, the Attorney General (acting) + Secretary State (acting) the lower legislative chamber. However, the Republicans hold the upper legislative chamber. PA-07 is a Biden +1 District  which became more competitive after 2021 redistricting when conservative Carbon County was added to the district In 2020, Wild’s margin of victory was 3.8% compared to a 2% margin in 2022, largely due to turnout. Her success is thought to be because of the Dobbs decision on Abortion, an increase in Democratic voter registration the increase in the youth vote. The Republicans are targeting this district once again in 2024 although no candidates have declared.
