Keep in mind folks this was a DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY that they lost, not a general election. The dems were battling to be the candidate, and when pandering to democratic leftists, the one who goes more communist wins. In the general election it will be a different story.
Its been amusing watching the democratic primaries actually, because when its time for the general, the Republican need only run the democratic guys own ad against them. What will get you votes from the communist block wont win you a general election.
Worth repeating word for word.

I don’t know the other two guys, but the in the Altmeir/Critz election Altmeir was the less liberal of the two, and it worked in his previous district which was not liberal. Critz was from Johnstown area and replaced Murtha, so he had no need to be anything but flaming liberal.
The new district will be interesting to see how the election goes, but its not the same as old Murtha district, where a communist could run and win all day every day. I don’t think the new district is going to be as receptive to Critz as his old one was. Given it was a republican legislature that formed the new district, I can almost assure you its intent was to end that guaranteed democratic win that the Murtha district had.
I know this, what I saw of Critz ads in their primary battle, I really don’t think he’s going to win..but time will tell.
