PA-3: Dahlkemper Eyeing Another Run?


Hat tip to The Herald (Sharon, PA):
Kathy Dahlkemper, the Erie Democrat who served a single term before losing the seat to Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly in November, says she’s exploring another run in 2012.

Mrs. Dahlkemper, 53, who told The Herald last year she wouldn’t rule out running for Congress again, told the Erie Times-News this week that she’ll have to make a decision fairly soon because waiting until the fall would put her at a disadvantage.
This is extremely peculiar as all evidence shows that citizens turned out en masse to vote AGAINST Dahlkemper, not to vote FOR Kelly. Additionally, Kelly has yet to do anything - good or bad - that would warrant enough voter ire to toss him out. His biggest blunder to date is his refusal to join the Tea Party Caucus, despite pretending to be a Tea Party guy during the primary and general elections. Remember his phony "tea party" that he had at his dealership?

Finally, 2012 is already shaping up to be yet another bloodbath for the Democrats. Dahlkemper must have incredibly bad handlers who are feeding her terrible information if she thinks that 2012 will be her year to win.

Sorry, this has nothing to do with this particular post. Do you have an email address that I can ask you a question?

Rich, on another note, what do you think of the likely GOP candidates for the White House? Just some off the cuff remarks, maybe; people would be interested in your thoughts on the (announced and speculated) field.
