Politico: Fitzpatrick’s Race Shifts From Leans GOP to Toss-Up
The race in the 1st Congressional District is now a Toss-Up, according to the final Election Forecast from the analysts at Politico.
Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick’s (R-Bucks) reelection bid against Democratic challenger Christina Finello has shifted from Leans Republican to Toss-Up, in the Forecast updated on Monday morning.
“GOP Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick survived the 2018 blue wave against a weak opponent,” writes Steven Shepard. “He again faces an underfunded Democrat, but the top of the ticket is dragging him down in Bucks County.”
The race in PA1 had previously been labeled as Leans Republican since April 2020, although it was introduced as a Toss-Up in their initial Election Forecast in Nov. 2019.
Politico rates two congressional races in Pennsylvania as Toss-Ups in their final Election Forecast – Fitzpatrick’s reelection bid for the 1st Congressional District and Rep. Scott Perry’s (R-York) race in the 10th District against Democratic challenger Eugene DePasquale.
