    Competitive race brews in Murtha's district

    Be afraid my left wing friends be very afraid.......I talked to my Nephew in Altoona last night and he said 20 of my relatives are going to vote in a block all for the republican candidate......5 of them have never voted republican and always voted for Murtha because of the pork..

    Competitive race brews in Murtha's district - CNN.com

    By Paul Steinhauser, CNN Deputy Political DirectorFebruary 11, 2010 3:16 p.m. EST


    - The mountains and valleys of southwestern Pennsylvania seem a world away from Washington, but they may soon be the scene of a fierce campaign battle between Democrats and Republicans.

    Monday's death of Democratic Rep. John Murtha triggers a special election for his office, and conventional wisdom says the GOP has a good chance to pick up a House seat.

    While Murtha rarely had any serious challenges in his 18 re-election contests, his party doesn't dominate what's considered a socially conservative district, which stretches from Cambria County in west-central Pennsylvania down to the southwestern corner of the state.

    In the 2004 presidential election, Sen. John Kerry won Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District by 2 percentage points. But Sen. John McCain narrowly edged out Barack Obama in that district in the 2008 presidential contest, even though Obama carried the state by 10 percent. The 12th was the only congressional district Kerry won in 2004 that McCain carried four years later.

    Wow. A republican might win a Dem's seat in the House. In a District that is the most porktacular in America.

    Now DC will become honest and ethical, spending will stop, pork will disappear, entitlements will be cut, and our government will become the most efficient on the planet.

    He won't be a RINO.. Western Pa. is very Conservative..Murtha use to be a conservative until he went senile..........Even Bob Casey is pro life.....They will find a good conservative candidate.....The dems are in trouble because of that and they know it..........
