Doylestown Township, Pa., Supervisor Cynthia Philo, a potential Democratic challenger to Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R), lost her re-election bid Tuesday evening.
A source close to Philo confirmed she’s still looking at the House race despite the election night setback.
Philo told Roll Call last month she was seriously thinking about challenging Fitzpatrick in 2012. She attended a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee candidate training session in Washington, D.C.
Fitzpatrick won last November with 54 percent of the vote in this competitive, Southeastern Pennsylvania district. Pennsylvania’s new Congressional map is not finished yet, but Democrats indicated already they would likely target Fitzpatrick in 2012.
United We Dream protesters carry a mock coffin to the office of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Monday, July 21, 2014, to hold one of their "funeral services for the Republican Party" due to GOP positions on immigration. The immigration reform group visited several other Senate Republican offices to hold similar funeral services.
