Gerlach Calls it Quits

Rep. Jim Gerlach (R-PA) announced he will not seek re-election in 2014, marking yet another moderate House Republican to leave Congress, Roll Call reports.

Gerlach's departure gives Democrats a decent opportunity to pick up the seat as Mitt Romney carried the district with just 51% in 2012.

PoliticsPA: "Gerlach was a Democratic target in 2012, but redistricting made his seat even safer for the Republican, but from the 2002 until the 2010 election, Gerlach's district was one of the nation's most competitive."
