I initially viewed this as an unwinnable re-match, but that changed this past May, when Democrat Andy Dinniman easily won a State Senate special election in the 19th Senate District, which had never before elected a Democrat, and where registered Republicans out-number registerd Democrats by a nearly two-to-one margin. The 19th state Senate District lies within the sixteenth Congressional District. The desire for change will make this the year for a Democrat to represent the sixteenth district in Congress.
Lois Herr talks sense about the Iraq war. SheI has been endorsed by the AFL-CIO, Communications Workers of America, the National Education Association, N.O.W., Planned Parenthood, National Women's Political Caucus, Women's Campaign Fund, and the Sierra Club of Pa.
This is her year. Conditions are right.
