Kathy Dahlkemper Has Reason to Sweat

Yesterday, in Pennsylvania’s 3rd congressional district, incumbent Democrat Kathy Dahlkemper had 34,483 votes. About 49,000 Democrats voted in that district’s primary.

The Republican primary winner, Mike Kelly, had 15,144 votes. But just under 54,000 Republicans voted in the primary on their side.

My summary from the list of 99:

Kathy Dahlkemper, Pennsylvania: She’s a freshman Democrat in a district McCain carried by 17 votes and Bush won easily. The local political gurus at PoliticsPA rank her the third-most-vulnerable lawmaker in the state.
