HERE'S WHAT SOLDIERS IN IRAQ ARE SAYING TO DIANA:

"Mrs. Irey, I am a soldier currently serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom and I am appalled at the remarks that Mr. Murtha has made regarding all aspects of the war and military in general. I used to serve with the USMC as a corpsman and was always told Semper Fidelis (always faithful) and "once a marine, always a marine", I guess to Mr. Murtha these slogans only have meaning during nonelection years. Good Luck in the election. We are all rooting for you in the election. May you restore the pride and leadership that Mr. Murtha has eroded in his congressional district."

(Name Withheld), Greensburg, PA

Now, ALL YOU WHO HAVE READ THIS, AND CAN AFFORD IT, PLEASE SUPPORT THEIR WISHES BY DONATING TO DIANA IREY NOW!

Please ping this.

I fully expect Irey to win and sent the maximum amount to her campaign to help her do it.

Murtha has voted against protecting traditoinal marriage. He's voted against securing our borders. He's voted for coddling terrorists and illegal immigrants. His plan to fight terror is to redeploy our troops to an island off the coast of Japan.

Polls, schmolls. This race has been totally overlooked by the MSM for reasons that are all too obvious.

There haven't been any numbers released, which makes me think she is a very long shot.

Considering voter registration in the district favors Democrats 2-1, it would take a miracle. Irey has run about as good of a campaign as you can run, but she has long odds to overcome.

It'll be a close race, no question. Diana Irey is fighting a 30-year incumbent. But the lack of polls doesn't mean anything. If Murtha were trouncing Irey, don't you think we'd hear about it? The MSM is ignoring this race because it doesn't fit their theme of "everyone is against the war and the Repubs are toast".

So, how come Kerry only beat Bush by less than 3% in that district?

Optimism has run amok in this race. She won't win because, like you said, there are more Democrats than Republicans in this district. I know what I'm talking about because I live in Massachusetts where the entire state has a pro-Democratic Party ratio of 3 to 1 over all other political parties. She should of ran in a "Republican friendly" district, and maybe she will do just that sometime in the future.

Do you live in the district? The district only went for Kerry in 04 by 51%. What does that tell you? These aren't liberal, gay marriage, cut-and-run Democrats. Your analysis is way too superficial. Put your money on Irey.

She has a lot of momentum the only poll I can find was nearly a month ago she was 10% down 45 55 (From early Oct) http://www.redstate.com/stories/elections/2006/new_polling_on_the_irey_murtha_race.)

A lot can happen in a month’s with the momentum she has. I would say she has a very good chance for a win.

I hope you are right. No I don't live there, but I have been there on occassion. I have seen the military 'plus up' pork that Murtha stuffs into the budget of worthless projects that are legislated for Johnstown. I have nothing but admiration for the campaign that Irey has run. Murtha is probably the most corrupt pork-stuffers in Congress, but that makes him popular in his district. Irey has a lot to overcome, but if someone can do it, she can.

The Scaife rag in Greensburg, PA endorsed Cong. John Murtha again in PA 12. Without an endorsement from the most prominent Republican newspaper in her district, Mrs. Irey's campaign appears to be ready for the glue factory, just like Missy in PA 4.

In Massachusetts, the Republicans kept winning the Governor's races because most of the voters liked their personalities better than those of the Democratic candidates for Governor. Politics had nothing to do with why some voters voted for Republican Governors in Massachusetts. For others, they wanted a "check and balance" system with a Democratic state legislature and a Republican Governor for "political balance". The present Republican candidate for Ma. Governor is considered too weak of a candidate to seriously win this time around.

"There haven't been any numbers released"
FALSE REASONING.... BECAUSE THERE HAVE BEEN NUMBERS RELEASED.....SHE WAS BEHIND BY 10, BUT SHE WILL RECOVER. Some reason just the opposite, that the lack of many polls being released is that she is gaining.

Your "long shot" prediction is FALSE also..... IMHO.

You see, Mrs. Irey doesn't want to move. She wants to represent the people that she's lived with for years, the place where her children have grown up.

With Diana Irey, it's not about personal gain or a power trip, she wants to represent the people for honest reasons.

If our supporting her is "optimism run amok" so be it, we're not forcing anyone to join in but we would ask you to join in and help her win.

The political situation with that district makes it very difficult for any Republican candidate to actually win. Iray may even make it a close race, but I realistically don't see her winning this race. I really want to be wrong about this.

Sat. I attended a private rally for Rick Santorum in Lancaster Co. PA.

You know how conservative rallies differ from lib rallies...people tend to cheerlead on the positive comments, versus boo & hiss and yell nasty stuff about the other side. But there were several times when murtha's name came up and people booed very loudly and yelled out "TRAITOR!". I was honestly surprised at the level of anger his name invoked.

I was standing & chatting with people around me, and twice I talked to people who, like me, have family "out Pittsburgh way", in murtha's soon-to-be ex-district. Lots of people in this area have familial connections to district 12. There is a high awareness of what is going on and a high level of outrage at murtha's treasonous comments. I'm sure this reflects sentiment from his district. Families do talk.
