CD-12 & 18 Open Thread

PoliticsPA will be covering election news and returns all Tuesday and late into the night to bring you the latest. This thread will feature the congressional matchups between Jason Altmire v. Mark Critz, and Evan Feinberg v. Tim Murphy.

9:45pm: PoliticsPA is calling the race for Tim Murphy. He is pulling in 63% of the vote with half the precincts reporting.

6:00PM: Murphy’s campaign manager James Genovese, reports that “things continue to go great. The Murphy team plans to work their hardest until the polls close tonight. Excitement ensures the volunteers who have been knocking on doors, making phone calls, and those stationed at the polls throughout the day.”

5:13pm: Feinberg’s latest update entails that his team continues to work the polling stations and adds that he is “very excited for the victory party.”

4:00PM: Altmire’s spokesperson says, “We have a record number of volunteers in the field helping to get out the vote and feel very confident about where we stand.” He also said that after visiting different areas of the district, Altmire is currently on his way back to DC, where he will maintain his record of never missing a single vote.

3:45PM: Murphy’s campaign manager says that they are “finishing strong.” In addition to knocking on doors and making phone calls, Murphy’s campaign manager reports that they have “over 100 polling locations covered from Crescent to Ligonier, Washington to Waynesburg.” The support for the Congressman “has been fantastic.”

2:41PM: Feinberg continues to stay positive. He says that he is “very confident about our prospects and are expecting victory.” Feinberg noted that the turnout appears to be low, but the voters that his campaign team has targeted have shown up to vote. Feinberg also added that Murphy has very few poll workers out today.

2:30PM: Critz’s campaign says it’s looking like they’ll have 30-35% turnout in Cambria County, which would meet their expectations. They’re still collecting numbers for Beaver County, but turnout is “extremely low.”

12:15pm: Murphy’s campaign manager James Genovese says that “things are looking great” on the Murphy front. Genovese reported that volunteers are “making calls, knocking on doors, and covering the poll locations to get the vote out.”

11:40AM: Candidate Evan Feinberg reports that there is a “clear enthusiasm gap in our favor and the voters we have been talking to for months are showing up and supporting my candidacy.” Reports from his grassroots poll workers have been “universally positive” as well.

11:30AM: Critz campaign manager Mike Mikus said they just got some numbers from key precincts in Cambria and Somerset, and they are currently on pace to meet or exceed their vote goals in those counties.

  1. Mary Lou,

    Do you think Critz had enough money to win? Can you enlighten me with your math again? How about this math? 52-48!

  2. Dust off the resume Mary Lou! In obama’s economy you better start practicing, “Do you want fries with that?” ha ha!!

  3. Just can’t believe Evan Feinberg can move into Pennsylvania 3months ago and take down Murphy. Despite the hateful comments Feinberg posts about Murphy, the voters in the district arent unhappy with him, and he remains well liked and alot of support. That’s why the Superpacs walked away from this race. Feinberg just isn’t a serious candidate and Murphy is very strong locally.

  4. Why does PoliticsPA continue to ignore the PA-11 Primary? Is a clean campaign not worth paying attention to? Even when one of the candidates has been touring the state in a giant pink pig bus?

    Just wondering about the lack of coverage…

  5. Only way they win is if it is “night of the living dead” in Cambria. Everyone else it’s okay to disenfranchise apparently except them. I was almost tempted to cruise around on a zambonie up there for kicks yesterday.

    Critz has coined “what I can say you can take to the bank”. His word isn’t even good enough to take to a piggy bank… ESP. when he said he voted against wall St reform because it’s what his constituents wanted. How stupid!!! Nonetheless we’ll see, feast or famine in Johntown tonight.

    Has anyone realized what a weak person he is? He cannot fight his own fights?

  6. The so-called lobbyist didn’t lend his campaign 100K. I wonder if Critz had it hidden in paper bags like his former boss, Abscam Murtha, hid his?
