    We'll see what happens. I'm more interested whether Sestak or Specter will win the Senate nomination. I still cant decide which is the lesser of two evils there.

    With just 6% of precincts reporting, Critz 62%, Burns 38%, - but very early and reporting is coming in from the Democrat strongholds at the moment.

    The Burns camp may be a just a bit nervous though...

    Republican Burns now trending up, though still trailing by nearly double-digits...

    Funny thing is, I agree, this is the most significant race. Oddly enough though... I didn't even know it was happening until this morning.

    We'll see how this goes, though. The GOP put a lot of money into the guy. He looks younger, healthier, and more charismatic then the guy and he's running in a very conservative district.

    If he DOESN'T win, that might mean that republicans need to change their strategy for 2010.

    I don't have an opinion of who should win though, since I just found out about it today.

    Momentum now shifting back to the Democrat - though on the ground folks for Burns maintaining their district strongholds have yet to be counted...

    I don't know a lot about PA-12 so excuse me for asking, but is it a district that's largely one-dimensional where most of it is widely rural? Or does it have more then one dimension, like a large rural area and a major city nearby or small city in the middle somewhere were you could actually say there are "strongholds" on either side?

    Westmoreland County tilting toward Republican Burns - that could prove decisive...

    Republican Burns now clearly showing momentum. Closing the gap...
