The last stop for Arnet before the polls close is the first stop on her campaign. After she won the Democratic nomination, the South Park Democrats invited her to speak at the Community Room on Brownsville Road. Pictured here, Arnet talks to Ray Stasny (right) and Don Mooney (left), a volunteer for Arnet’s opponent Guy Reschenthaler.

At the election party at Bado’s in Mount Lebanon, Rep. Dan Miller (right), of the 42nd Legislative District, and Jay Costa (left), state senator for the 43rd District, discuss the numbers as districts begin to report totals. Arnet chose to wait at home while results came in.

By the time Arnet arrived at Bado’s, she was down 5 percent with over 50 percent of the total votes accounted for.

As the remainder of the districts reported, the gap widened to 7 percent, and Reschenthaler secured the win. Arnet remained on the back porch of Bado’s with her campaign staff.
