PoliticsPA Reader Poll: Who Will Come Out on Top in PA-12

PoliticsPA wants to know: Who do you think will come out on top in the race for PA-12?

It’s Pennsylvania’s most competitive Congressional race by a longshot.

Both Congressman Mark Critz and hopeful Keith Rothfus are on TV non-stop. Their fundraising numbers are high, and their debates (both in person and on twitter) are lively and vigorous. It’s a race that writers live for. Cast away!

    If Rothfus couldn’t get it done in 2010, he won’t now. Not even with a more conservative district.

    Dave, nice observation of the crazy who does nothing other than copy and paste her stupid lying story on her comments. She has nothing to add to the political arena and should stop. congressman critz has cosponsored a lot of women’s rights legislation. She’s just crazy. Critz will win. Go Mark!

    If you want to know who Keith Rothfus appeals to look at his campaign contributions. If you look at his top 10 campaign contributors 7 or 8 of them are PACs being bankrolled by some of the richest and most corrupt people in the U.S. Congressman Critz’s top 10 contributors are from companies who are responsible for jobs in the 12th District of PA. Keith Rothfus works for Corporate America. The rich will get richer and the middle class slowly disappear in his world. If Rothfus wins (I sure hope not) the ultimate loser will be the 12th District of PA, and the big winners will be the rich and the greedy. Congressman Critz has my vote!!

  4. Dave says:

    Critz doesn’t hate women pal. I think you’re being a little extreme. Ive been watching your posts since the special election in the 12th a few years ago and I thought you were way off base then.

    I digress. Back to reality. So nobody can actually answer the question regarding how Rothfus is the most qualified.

  5. get them out says:

    What qualifications did Critz have besides kissing the behind of Murtha? And the Trib endorsed both men. The fact is Critz will have no job when he loses because he isn’t qualified to mop a bathroom floor and his hate of women should be known.
    This is not a good man in anyway!
    He would have lost big in his old district!

    Need help with the VA? Hate Obama. Problems with a Social Security claim?Hate Obama. Want to seriously discuss Chinese currency manipulation? Hate Obama. Does that sound like Rothfus has a plan? The NRA says Critz , the Farm Bureau says Critz. The Tribune Review says Critz and soon every other major newspaper in the District will Say Critz. Keith loses and campaign guru Raso fails so badly Toomey doesn’t let him come back to his staff.

  7. Dave says:

    Please elaborate on how Rothfus is the most qualified. What does his resume and experience consist of?

  8. Here’s hoping PA voters recognize the failed policies of President Obama and endorsed fully by both Sen Casey & Critz, and vote for the defense & support of our Constitution, the freedoms guaranteed by it, and the separation of powers. Vote an end to Obama’s War on Coal – vote Tom Smith & Keith Rothfus for a renewed Pennsylvania!

  9. Victoria S. Case says:

    Keith is the most qualified, best person to fill this seat!!
