The Pennsylvania Senate voted Wednesday against removing state Attorney General Kathleen Kane from office. The vote allows Kane to continue leading the Office of Attorney General as she defends herself against criminal charges and an impeachment investigation that the state House of Representatives voted Wednesday to initiate.

The vote was 29-19 in favor of removal, falling three votes shy of the two-thirds majority required to send the matter to Gov. Tom Wolf for a final decision. Sen. Stewart Greenleaf, R-Montgomery, was the lone Republican to vote against Kane’s removal, and Sen. Rob Teplitz, D-Dauphin, was the only Democrat to vote in favor.
