Declined to run
In early 2013, PoliticsPA and The Hill previewed three Pennsylvania races which showed promise for a competitive primary or potential partisan switch. Of the eighteen total House seats up for election in 2014, Republicans held thirteen.
In the 11th District race, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was looking at Chris Carney as a potential challenger to incumbent Lou Barletta; however, Carney declined to enter the race. Barletta instead faced Democrat Andy Ostrowski in the general election.
