Eleven incumbent Republicans swept to re-election in contested legislative races in Lancaster County on Tuesday.

In the 36th Senatorial District, covering the northern half of the county, Sen. Ryan P. Aument, 42, of Landisville, easily bested his Democratic challenger, electrician Bill Troutman, 59, of Elizabethtown.

Aument served two terms in the state House before being elected to the Senate in 2014.

It’s clear that voters “expect results,” he said.

With 98 percent of precincts reporting, the results were:

  • Ryan P. Aument (R): 67,626
  • Bill Troutman (D): 34,312
