HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania’s Republican-controlled Senate has passed a bill that orders a number of changes to state laws over partisan election observers in polling places and election offices, a throwback to complaints in 2020 by former President Donald Trump that the Democratic bastion of Philadelphia needed to be watched closely for election fraud. Pennsylvania is still roiled by Trump’s baseless claims that 2020′s presidential election was stolen from him. The bill passed Monday, 30-19, with every Republican and one Democrat backing it. The office of Gov. Tom Wolf, a Democrat, said in a statement that the administration strongly opposes the bill and that it “does nothing to increase access to voting.”
