Fallout from the 10th CD results

The big liberal blogs now have this race on the radar.

Atrios: Sherwood (R-Accused Mistress Choker) Survives Primary

MyDD: PA - 10 Sherwood Narrowly Escapes Strangulation at the Polls in Primary

That Liberal Blog: Republican adulterer Don Sherwood wins GOP nomination

Non Partisan CQPolitics has upgraded this to a competitive race:

As a result of Sherwood's tepid primary showing, has changed the rating of the Pennsylvania 10 race to Leans Republican from Republican Favored. The new rating suggests Sherwood still has an edge in the race, but that an upset is a stronger possibility; it also places Pennsylvania 10 among the three dozen most competitive House races in the nation this year.

And Max Cleland is coming to town. From a press release:

Clarks Summit, Pa.-Over Memorial Day weekend, former U.S. Senator Max Cleland will visit the 10th District of Pennsylvania to campaign with Chris Carney. As a Captain in the U.S. Army in Vietnam, Max Cleland was awarded the Silver Star and the Bronze Star for valorous action in combat, including action during the battle of Khe Sanh. On April 8, 1968, Cleland lost two legs and an arm in a grenade explosion. In his home state of Georgia, Cleland ran for and was elected to the United States Senate in 1996.
