Congressman Jack Murtha is now tied with his Republican opponent who is a veteran from Iraq. The two remarks about his constituents being racist or rednecks did not help the 18 term Congressman.
Obama’s internal polls which were leaked say that Obama is only two points ahead of McCain in the keystone state. McCain’s internal polls must be showing him the same thing since he has not pulled out of this state and has been here far more then the Democratic Candidate for President.
This state that went for John Kerry has a good shot of turning red this year and Congressman Murtha’s remarks are not going to help neither will Obama’s comments about redistributing the wealth. This state could go red for the first time in 20 years.
