Gerlach Wants to Keep His Job

U.S. Representative Jim Gerlach (R-Chester County), who yesterday announced he was withdrawing from the race for the Republican nomination for Pennsylvania Governor, today says he will seek-re-election to Congress.  That has some Republicans disturbed because they either wanted or began lining up behind other candidates when they thought Gerlach was not going to run again. Some other Republicans, however, are pleased because they feel it is their best chance to hold on to the seat.  Democrat Doug Pike says it doesn’t matter to him and that he was running against Gerlach all along.  The sixth district, a mix of rural, suburban and urban, is outside Philadelphia and is closely divided among Democrats and Republicans.
