CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Incumbent Republican Rob Kauffman easily won re-election to a second two-year term representing the 89th District in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in Tuesday's election, according to complete, but unofficial results from the Franklin Election Board.

Kauffman, 32, had 71 percent of the vote to 29 percent for the 28-year-old Democratic challenger, Andrew Alosi, a manager at the Cornell Abraxas Day Treatment Program making his first foray into elective politics.

Kauffman received 11,699 votes, while Alosi received 4,718 in Franklin County.

In Cumberland County, Kauffman received 1,718 votes, while Alosi received 1,052 votes.

In a district with about 38,000 registered voters, Republicans outnumber Democrats 21,432 to 12,355 with about 5,000 people registered as independents or with small parties.

The 89th District includes the boroughs of Chambersburg, Shippensburg and Orrstown; Greene, Letterkenny, Lurgan and Southampton townships and part of Guilford Township in Franklin County and six precincts in Cumberland County.
