Some welcome news for the GOP in Pennsylvania.

Despite appearing to be on the verge of losing some seats in Pennsylvania for the U.S. House, in part to the new Congressional map, election analyst, Inside Elections, believes a race is tightening in Northeast Pennsylvania.

Inside Elections changed the race in PA-8 between incumbent (D) U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright and GOP challenger John Chrin from “Likely Democrat” to “Leans Democrat”.

Chrin’s campaign credits the rating as a swing in momentum starting from recently being added to the NRCC’s “Young Guns” and earning the endorsement from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
