— Critz didn’t lose; he was robbed

The Republican-controlled state government made sure to include Allegheny and Beaver counties in our congressional district’s reapportionment. It makes it  almost impossible for someone from Cambria County to win a 12th district election.

We are going to pay for losing Rep. Mark Critz. There will be job losses and contracts will not be awarded to the East Hills defense contractors.

The Republicans were after a great congressman, Jack Murtha, who did a lot for this area. He worked with both parties.

Critz worked about 12 years alongside  Murtha and learned a lot.

How can anyone respect how this election was won? Somerset County voters listened to lies in TV political ads. In time, they will realize what a big mistake they made when it comes to jobs.

Hold your head up high, congressman Critz. You did not lose; they robbed you.
