Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-PA 11), one of the cycle's most endangered Dems, has held on to beat '02 nominee/Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta (R), 52-48%. Barletta was one of the GOP's best recruits this cycle, but Kanjorski survived.I don't know why Bill Clinton is still in public life. Ann Coulter doesn't think he should be even in private life.
And in PA-12, reports of Rep. John Murtha's (D) demise were greatly exaggerated. He beat back ret. Army lieutenant colonel William Russell (R) by a surprisingly easy 59-41% score.
Pres. Clinton campaigned for both in the waning days of the campaign, and each touted the money they brought back to their districts as a reason to return them to DC.
