Published by Tim McNulty on .

At 10 p.m. the most competitive congressional race in Pennsylvania -- Pa12 -- remains on a razor's edge at 50.3-49.7% for Democratic incumbent Mark Critz over GOP challenger Keith Rothfus, with the difference between them about 1,200 votes.

Here's a snapshot from the state's website (which cuts off Westmoreland, where Rothfus leads by about 500 votes):
