Race background

On February 26, 2013, PoliticsPA and The Hill previewed three Pennsylvania races that were showing early promise of a competitive primary or a possible partisan switch. The 13th District was included in their list. Of the eighteen total House seats up for election in 2014, Republicans currently hold thirteen.

The 13th District seat is currently held by a Democrat, Allyson Schwartz. Schwartz will have to vacate her seat in 2014 because she ran for governor against incumbent Tom Corbett (R).[3]
