As we’ve reported before, the fight for Bucks County’s 1st Congressional District, between Republican U.S. Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick and Democrat Christina Finello, is a must-watch contest. An Oct. 6 Public Policy poll showed the two candidates running in a statistical dead heat.
And that could explain this high-profile text blast that was sent to Republican voters in the district on Tuesday.
The 1st District, which includes Bucks and Montgomery counties, has been in Republican hands for a decade. The last Democrat to hold the seat was former U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, who went on to become an Obama administration official.
