State mistakenly declares Laughlin Democratic nominee

the Republican incumbent (Laughlin) ran a write in Campaign on the Demonrat ticket in the primary. he got 1,200 votes the Demonrat candidate (Slomski) got 19,000 votes.

the State declared him the winner and the Dems blamed him for the States

Caitlin Handerhan, campaign manager for Slomski, issued a statement Wednesday evening accusing Laughlin of “turning his back on the people of Erie by siding with extreme Republicans.”

“Dan Laughlin trying to deceive voters during the Democratic Primary only proves one thing: he’s a typical Harrisburg politician,” Handerhan said. “A clerical error by the Department of State isn’t a story.”
