Good news from the Keystone State.  The latest polling in Pennsylvania’s Third Congressional District polling has Republican Mike Kelly up by 13 points in a race that political handicapper Stu Rothenberg has rated as “Lean Republican”

When Democrat Kathy Dahlkemper’s record is taken into full account, the buzz surrounding this campaign isn’t shocking.  Since Dahlkemper took office in 2009, unemployment in the district has risen from 6.8% to nearly 9.3%.  She’s also been called out for distorting her record, all the while supporting her party’s failed stimulus bill, higher taxes and more debt.

Pennsylvanian’s overdue for the “change” they deserve and thought they were voting for in the last election.  Unlike his opponent, Mike Kelly has been listening to the concerns of the people of PA-03 and will be ready to represent their best interests in Washington come January.

This November, voters in Northwestern Pennsylvania have a prime opportunity to put a seat back in the Republican column and help stop Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s job-killing, tax-and-spend agenda.  After only barely defeating Republican Phil English in 2008, Kathy Dahlkemper currently represents Pennsylvania’s Third District. This fall, Dahlkemper enters another uphill battle as she faces Republican candidate Mike Kelly, who has a record as a job creator and is committed to holding the line on spending and paying down the debt.
