Erin McClelland has at least one thing to be thankful for this week. In our poll of PoliticsPA readers, we asked who Democrats should nominate to take on incumbent freshman Congressman Republican Keith Rothfus in Pennsylvania’s 12th district.
Businesswoman Erin McClelland and Rep.Murtha’s former Chief of Staff John Hugya are the only two Democratic candidates who have formally announced their entry into the race.
McClelland won our readers’ poll in a landslide with 293 votes, over 60% of the total. Hugya, meanwhile received only 135 votes. 50 respondents chose someone else.
Here are the full results of the poll:
Who should Democrats nominate in PA-12?
