Kathy Dahlkemper will have to go it alone in the final weeks of her campaign as she struggles to hold on to her third district congressional seat against Republican Mike Kelly in northwestern Pennsylvania. The Democratic Party is pulling support of Dahlkemper in order to focus on more competitive races elsewhere. More on this to follow in the morning. From The New York Times:
Representatives Steve Driehaus of Ohio, Suzanne M. Kosmas of Florida and Kathy Dahlkemper of Pennsylvania were among the Democrats who learned that they would no longer receive the same infusion of television advertising that party leaders had promised. Party strategists conceded that these races and several others were slipping out of reach.
A recent poll by Mercyhurst has Kelly leading first-term Dahlkemper by seven.
