Voters chose to re-elect State Rep. Todd Stephens of Horsham.
Todd Stephens has duked it out in three contests for the 151st legislative district. On Tuesday, State Rep. Stephens, of Horsham, earned a second term representing residents of his hometown, as well as Ambler, Abington, Montgomery Township and Upper Dublin. When reached for comment just after 10 p.m. Tuesday, Stephens, who lost his first bid in 2008 against Democrat Rick Taylor, said that while he was proud of his record, it's impossible to know what other factors might play into people's votes. "Obama carried my district by 5,000 votes and I lost by 419 votes," Stephens said of the 2008 race.

Incumbent Todd Stephens and Democrat Will Sylianteng compete for the legislative district which covers Horsham, Upper Dublin, Ambler, Montgomery Township and Abington.
For Democrat Will Sylianteng, the man contesting incumbent State Rep. Todd Stephens for his seat representing the 151st legislative district, sums up Tuesday as a "good day one way or the other."

Will Sylianteng, candidate for State House, 151st District, commends the Supreme Court and the Commonwealth Court for putting voter ID law on hold.
Wednesday, October 3, 2012
I commend both the Supreme Court and the Commonwealth Court for putting a halt to the Voter ID law, at least for this year. It is clear that the Courts recognized that the Voter ID law was rushed through the legislature by my opponent and his colleagues in order to suppress Democractic votes. The right to vote is a precious right that we must all be diligent in protecting. Legislators like my opponent should not attempt to manipulate the law for their own political gains. I urge the people of the 151st to choose a new way forward and vote for leaders that will work for Pennsylvania not for their own agenda. Signed, Will Sylianteng, Candidate for State House, 151st District
