The GOP is finding more reasons to smile a year away from a high-stakes election in which voters will pick a new governor and a new U.S. senator.

With Republicans on the cusp of sweeping Pennsylvania's statewide judicial races, the GOP is finding more reasons to smile a year away from a high-stakes election in which voters will pick a new governor and a new U.S. senator. 

Republicans could be considered favored in both contests next year: the party of the president almost always loses seats in Congress in midterm elections, and a Republican has always replaced an outgoing Democratic governor in Pennsylvania’s current political era. 

Republican campaign strategist, Christopher Nicholas, pointed to a slate of countywide victories in Bucks County, a political bellwether north of Philadelphia. 

He says that also bodes well for Republicans next year.
