Here are some mailings by Keith Rothfus trying to tie President Obama to Mark Critz. Since Rothfus would have a hard time running against Critz’s actual record of being a moderate Democrat that is Pro-Life, Pro-Gun, and Pro-Military, Rothfus is going to try and paint Critz as a flaming liberal. That is a bit of a hard sell in my opinion. The people that this type of mail piece really resonates with aren’t going to vote for any Democrats this cycle. So it looks like the Rothfus campaign just spent a couple of thousand dollars to preach to the choir.
Just like in 2010, Rothfus doesn’t seem to get what it takes to talk to the moderate split ticket voters that exist in Western Pennsylvania.
