Milton Street was initially elected as a Democrat, but before he began his Senate term, he changed his party to become a Republican, giving the GOP control of the House, according to the Philadelphia Tribune. He also made unsuccessful bids for the Pennsylvania House, Philadelphia City Council, and the US Congress.
