JOHNSTOWN, CAMBRIA COUNTY--- Candidates for the 12th Congressional District have eight days to win over voters for two races.
Mark Critz and Tim Burns are two main contenders in the race.
A rally was held Monday at the Richland Fire Hall for Burns. Congressman Mike Pence, Republican of Indiana co-hosted the rally for Burns.
Critz joined the “Get-out-the-Vote” Bus and greeted workers at Johnstown Wire Technologies.
Burns and Critz are all vying for the publics vote on May 18th for two races.
“People are tired of Washington and are not happy with the healthcare, they're going to show that May 18,” said Burns.
“The excitement is building for Tuesday and the turn out is going to be significant. It comes down to my message and it’s been received well by both republicans and democrats. I think I am going to be the winner,” said Critz.
The special election will decide who heads to Washington representing the 12th District until November. Voters will also decide on their primary ballot who they want to represent their party on the November ballot for the general election and the next full term for the district.
