Dee Adcock has spent the better part of the past few months playing the part of his cycle’s humble Republican challenger to Democrat incumbent Allyson Schwartz in Pennsylvania’s 13th district. The district, north of Philadelphia in Montgomery County, has been solid blue for a decade, and the Cook Partisan Voting Index has the territory as D +7.
Adcock’s campaign, rightly or wrongly, has not attracted the kind of enthusiasm that similar challenges by the likes of Mike Kelly in PA-3, Pat Meehan in PA-7, or Lou Barletta in PA-11 have received. But as of last week, that could be changing. Adcock’s campaign released a poll conducted in early September that suggests the race could not just be competitive, but may actually be a dead heat.
