PA-13 is, of course, the district of Allyson Schwartz. It’s been considered safe in the past, largely because the district hasn’t changed hands since 1988 – despite being only about D+7. Speaking frankly: I like districts like that. They’re more fun to take away from the Other Side. Particularly when we’re talking about a cipher like Schwartz. And doubly particularly when Pennsylvania is going to be fought over to a degree not seen since… about 1988 or so.
The current candidate for PA-13 is former pilot and military veteran Joe Rooney, and he’s looking to upset this particular applecart. We talked for a bit about the race:
