The Democratic Party of Pennsylvania aims for unity

Despite embracing progressive positions, a candidate who is unabashedly blunt lacks chemistry with party leaders and commands a 6-foot-8 frame. As a person of moderate views, the other crafts an image as someone who is a good public speaker and who has cultivated relationships within the party ever since he became a congressional aide.

Yet their fate - and the fate of the Democratic Party - is tied to Pennsylvania elections, which are likely to be among the most watched in America.

Democrats have a clear path to picking up a U.S. Senate seat in Fetterman, which could be crucial to helping them retain control of the chamber.

Shapiro, meanwhile, poses even larger existential questions as he faces a Republican rival for governor who has embraced conspiracies about the last presidential election and would have significant influence over running the next one in the premier battleground state.
