PA-8: Rep. Fitzpatrick Re-Elected

mike-fitzpatrick2Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick is heading back to Washington.

Despite being the most targeted incumbent in the Keystone State, Fitzpatrick was able to prevail over his Democratic opponent Kevin Strouse.

Rep. Fitzpatrick first won election to Congress in 2004. He was defeated by Congressman Patrick Murphy in 2006 but won a rematch with Murphy in 2010.

Strouse, an Iraq and Afghanistan War veteran was one of the prime DCCC recruits but struggled with a competitive primary challenge from Shaughnessy Naughton.

Fitzpatrick has pledged that this would be his final term in Congress, meaning this should be an open seat in 2016.

Rated by the Cook Political Report as a R+1 district, the 8th represents all of Bucks County and parts of Upper Montgomery County.

  1. On December 11, 2014 Fitzpatrick turned his back on the PA-8 voters by backing Obama’s executive overreach on amnesty and supporting virtually unlimited PAC campaign finance funding. For one who talks about middle class jobs in Bucks, his vote for unlimited illegal immigration continues the downward confidence and trust citizens have for Congress. Mike’s new brand is Fitzpatrick W-8 (for weasel).
