On Tuesday, May 18, there will be a special election to fill the Pennsylvania congressional seat of the late John Murtha. So unpopular has the Democratic agenda become in this part of the Keystone State that even the Democratic nominee Mark Critz has been campaigning against Obamacare. But, remember, should that Democrat prevail, he’ll become a loyal foot soldier for Nancy Pelosi. Should he be reelected to a full term in November, the first vote that Democrat would cast would to extend Mrs. Pelosi’s terms as Speaker.
Citing a Public Policy Polling survey which shows Pelosi’s favorables in the district at 24 percent, compared to 64 percent unfavorable, Jim Geraghty reports that the Republican candidate in the race, “Tim Burns[,] is having a money-bomb.”
Please join me in making a modest contribution to this fine Republican.
