The importance of November's election

This week brought some news that reminds us once again just how important this November's election is for the future of our country, because we have a chance that may not come again to change our country's direction.

A recent poll conducted by two nationally renowned pollsters for National Public Radio--the source of some excellent journalism but hardly a conservative mouthpiece--looked at the seventy most competitive districts around the country, including this one. The results are stark: the same voters--conservative Democrats, independent voters, and some Republicans--who voted for the liberal Democrats in 2006 and for Barack Obama in 2008 are eager to see a real change in our nation's policies this year.

In the same poll, 56% of voters in districts like ours said that the country "needs new people in Washington," while those polled preferred Republicans to Democrats by a margin of 49% to 41%.

No poll in June can guarantee anything about results in November--but this survey makes clear what I have believed for more than a year: big-spending Democrats like Jason Altmire are wildly out of step with Western Pennsylvania and with your help we can elect a Congressman this year who shares our values.

If you have not done so, please take a moment today to volunteer for our campaign or to make a contribution on this website. The stakes this year are far too high for anyone to "sit out" this election!
