2002 KEY RACE Election Results
These KEY RACES were identified as close races. With the exception of three*, they were considered must-win races, important to protect the pro-CCW majority in the General Assembly.

Jim Trakas (R-17) - WIN!
*These races were not identified as so-called must-win races for the CCW issue, but were candidates we deemed worthy of support, as these candidates sought to overcome heavy odds to unseat anti-CCW incumbents.
