Section 2911.1 of PA Title 25 is “The Sore Loser Law” so called because, as Harry Fawkes told me, Republicans who were defeated by the Republican party insiders in the Primary changed parties and ran in the General Election in the fall. Harry told me he made some calls and a section was added to the PA Code, section 2911.1, that stopped that.  Section 2911.1 reads: Any person who is a registered and enrolled member of a party during any period of time beginning with thirty (30) days before the primary and extending through the general  or municiple election of that same year shall be ineligible to be a candidate of a political body in a general or municiple election held in that same year nor shall any person who is a registered and enrolled member of a party be eligible to be the candidate of a political body for a special election.
