The race for the 6th congressional district is starting to look lively, whether or not incumbent Jim Gerlach stays in or jumps to the governor's race.
Murphy, Schwartz give hopeful Pike boost
By Alex Roarty
U.S. reps. Allyson Schwartz and Patrick Murphy attended a fundraiser for Democratic southeast congressional candidate Doug Pike in Washington, D.C. on Monday night, sources who attended the event told PoliticsPA.
Pike’s campaign announced Monday it had hired Andrew Eldredge-Martin as campaign manager and Amanda McKay as finance director.
Eldredge-Martin was the campaign manager for Chris Carney in 2006, on the PoliticsPA list of best campaigns of that year, with this note:
Campaign manager Drew Eldredge-Martin deserves credit for keeping Carney on message and running among the best Democratic races in the state this year.
An ad from the 2006 Carney campaign is also among four successful campaign tactics listed in the June 2009 PoliticsMagazine "Campaign Takedowns."
This could be the most interesting congressional race of the year.
