Battle for the 6th

The Christian Science Monitor has an article looking at Rep. Jim Gerlach's 6th Congressional District as a bellwether for the midterm elections, given the area's mixed party affiliation and the likely close battle against Lois Murphy. The district is a messy and meandering one (see map here) just northwest of Philadelphia, apparently designed with Gerlach (then a state senator) in mind. Lots of anecdotal reports of Republican voters turned off of the party by Bush Administration policies . . .
