Clarks Summit, PA-In the August 25th, 2006 edition of the Rothenberg Political Report, A Nonpartisan Analysis of American Politics and Elections, Stuart Rothenberg calls Carney/Sherwood race for the 10th District a “Toss-up,” which is an upgrade from his previous ranking of “Lean Republican.”
In his analysis, Rothenberg notes that “Cong. Don Sherwood has had plenty of problems,” and he calls Chris Carney “an interesting challenger.” He goes on to say that Sherwood’s grip on the District is “tenuous.” In conclusion, he says that “This is a very interesting Democratic opportunity and a GOP headache in a very Republican district.”
Rothenberg divides House races into “toss up,” “lean,” and party “favored” categories. In this latest issue, he noted that the PA-10 race is a Toss-Up that “tilts” Republican, reflecting the make-up of the District.
