Pennsylvania: Murtha’s Widow Won’t Run

The race among Democrats to fill Pennsylvania’s Rep. John Murtha‘s seat often seems like a competition over who would most resemble the 18-term Johnstown powerbroker once in office.
On Monday, the person who would most embody that sentiment, his widow, Joyce, said she is not going to run for the seat — opening the Democratic field for more than a half-dozen candidates. The Murtha for Congress Committee said in a statement that Mrs. Murtha “feels that it is too soon after his death to be on the campaign trail.”
