Do you notice a pattern here?

In 2006, Pennsylvania Democrats won a U.S. Senate seat, four Pennsylvania Congressional seats, retained the governor's mansion and took control of the state House of Representatives for the first time in 12 years.

In 2007, Pennsylvania Democrats won both open seats on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, giving them a 4-3 majority.

Democrats also won one of the three open seats on the Pennsylvania Superior Court.

Republicans lost majority control of county commissioner boards in 11 Pennsylvania counties on Tuesday.

The only bright spot for Republicans is the retention of Justice Thomas Saylor, who was targeted by anti-pay raise activists.

Something is terribly wrong with the leadership of the Republican Party in Pennsylvania. If this was Japan, the party leaders would be jumping off buildings today.

Pennsylvania Republican Party Chairman Robert A. Gleason Jr. put out a press release today proclaiming that the party is back. What planet is he living on? It's more like the party has its back to the wall and there's a firing squad in front of it.

The sooner Republicans stick their head out of the sand and make wholesale changes at the top, the sooner the GOP can stop the hemorrhaging.

Pennsylvania could decide the next president of the United States. If the state party keeps the current leadership, can you say President Hillary Clinton?
