Maybe this will help Russell.
Russell lost the primary to Burns.
My bad, defiant memory...
I recall Russell losing the special, but ‘imagined’ that wasn’t the case for November. It’s been off the radar and don’t recall seeing final numbers for both the special and midterm.
After being soundly defeated by Mark Critz in the May 18th special election, Tim Burns managed to stumble into a win over Bill Russell in the Republican primary the same day.
The May 18th performance of Tim Burns was, to be charitable, underwhelming.
I expect Burns will lose to Critz again in November, probably get a little over 40% of the vote.
On a brighter note, the GOP appears headed for a good night in November in alot of the other Pennsylvania races, and hopefully that will play an important role in the national picture.
Thanks for the info smooth.
November should have been Russell’s challenge.
