Pennsylvania 5th District - no longer safe Republican?
We've just been informed by a highly reliable source that an internal Republican poll of Pennsylvania's Fifth Congressional district, a "safe Republican" district for decades, is now showing a tie between Republican Glenn Thompson and Democrat Mark McCracken.
Thompson has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on the campaign. The district has been so safely Republican that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee did not send money to McCracken, who has spent almost nothing on the campaign.
This would be a historic upset for the largest Congressional in Pennsylvania.
