Pennsylvania: Both Parties Gunning for Murtha’s Seat

Both parties are pouring in money and dispatching heavy hitters in advance of a May 18 special election in western Pennsylvania, a race that could provide important signals about the outcome of the November elections.

Democrat Mark Critz, a longtime aide to the late Rep. John Murtha, is facing off against Republican businessman Tim Burns as they vie to succeed Mr. Murtha. The winning party will be able to claim a morale-boosting victory as the campaign season heats up.
