Two Candidates Only One 12th District Seat

The clock is ticking for political candidates to get their message out to voters in the November Election.  Two men said they're the best applicant for the job.
JOHNSTOWN, CAMBRIA COUNTY--- The clock is ticking for political candidates to get their message out to voters in the November Election. 
Two weeks to go and the negative ads are heating up.

"Look If you have to put commercial on TV saying you're a regular guy than you're not a regular guy," said incumbent Democrat Mark Critz, 12th District.

"It's been echoed by the Congressman and his campaign that I am 'Wall Street lawyer," that's not true," said Republican challenger Keith Rothfus.

Both candidates are battling to represent the new 12th Congressional District that stretches across six counties, including Cambria, Somerset, Beaver and Westmoreland.  Critz and Rothfus each claim to create jobs and improve healthcare.  Rothfus said he is just an average guy; Critz is in his fourth election in just two years.

"My days are filled from morning to night," said Critz.  "I work harder at my job as a Congressman than I do campaigning."

"These career politicians are out of touch and we need a citizen's touch," said Rothfus.

Rothfus has focused his campaign on tying Critz to the President and his policies to win a seat in Congress,

"We have the wrong economic policies and unfortunately the President and my opponent believe in a policy based solutions," said Rothfus.

Democrat or Republican Critz said it's not about party affiliation it's about getting the job done.

"The people of this country are waiting for us to step up and say it's not the Republican or Democratic way- but the best way to get this country moving forward together," said Critz.
