PA-12: The Baloons Didn’t Drop
Even with one win, Tuesday night was a tough one for PA-12 Republican congressional candidate Tim Burns. After a hard fought special election battle for John Murtha’s former congressional seat, Burns came up short in the vote count, losing to Democrat challenger and former Murtha Aid Mark Critz 53%-45%.
Burns did win his primary battle against Bill Russell 57%-43%, which means he will be facing Critz once again in the November elections.
More detail about the day in PA-12 to follow this afternoon.
