Elections for the office of Pennsylvania State Senate took place in 2014. A primary election took place on May 20, 2014. The general election was held on November 4, 2014. The signature-filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in that election was March 11, 2014. Incumbent Stewart Greenleaf was unopposed in the Republican primary, while Ruth S. Damsker was unopposed in the Democratic primary. Greenleaf defeated Damsker in the general election.[2][3][4]

The Pennsylvania State Senate was a battleground chamber that Ballotpedia had identified as having the opportunity to switch partisan control in 2014. The Pennsylvania Senate had a difference in partisan balance between Democrats and Republican of four seats, which amounts to 16 percent of the seats up for election in 2014. District 12 in the Senate was identified by Ballotpedia and the Philadelphia City Paper as a battleground district that could determine control of the Pennsylvania State Senate. Incumbent Stewart Greenleaf (R) defeated Ruth S. Damsker (D) in the general election. The district had favored a generic Republican by 1 point.[5]
