Becker defeated Scaturro in the Republican primary in 2010. Both had hopes for defeating McCarthy in the general election, with the redrawn district possibly being more favorable to Republicans in 2012.
Becker distributed flyers accusing Scaturro of secretly being an "Arlen-Specter Democrat." This criticism arose because Scaturro was an aide to the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, of which Specter was the chairman. Scaturro, however, retorted that he is a strong Republican, and that he did not switch camps with Specter.
On the issues, both candidates agreed on the need to repeal Obamacare, the need to support Israel and the need to curtail entitlement programs.
