WashPost: PA12 leans Republican

Published by Tim McNulty on .

Probably even more Democratic stomachs turning at this: the WashPost's Fix blog has moved it's rating on PA12 from tossup to "lean Republican" in favor of Keith Rothfus over Dem incumbent Mark Critz. It's one of a number of Dem seats in conservative districts looking in trouble Tuesday.

To wit:

Critz is in a very tough spot right now, with Republican polls this month showing him slightly behind Republican Keith Rothfus. This district would have given John McCain 54 percent of the vote in 2008.
