WEST BRADFORD >> Eric Roe easily earned his way to another Republican nomination for Pennsylvania’s 158th Legislative District. At 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday with 81 percent of the county results tabulated, he had received 2,719 votes to challenger William “Don” Westbrook’s 312 in the primary election.

Roe was the only incumbent state representative in Chester County facing a primary challenge.

The 158th District covers the municipalities of Avondale, East Bradford, East Marlborough, sections of Kennett, London Britain, New Garden, Newlin, Wesst Bradford, West Goshen and West Marlborough.

Roe, 30, of Marshallton was elected in 2016 to fill the seat that became vacant with the retirement of longtime Rep. Chris Ross of East Marlborough Township.

In his year-and-a-half in Harrisburg, he said he is pleased that his bill against partisan gerrymandering gained widespread support. In the future, if he is elected for another term, he said he wants to make sure income and sales taxes do not go up. He also is aiming to make Pennsylvania more business friendly.

Christina Sappey of West Bradford ran unopposed in the Democratic Primary and will face Roe in November.

Sappey has worked for state legislators from the county for a total of 12 years.

All election results are unofficial until confirmed by the Chester County Board of Elections.
