PA-12 candidates debate

I took this video last night at the debate between the PA-12 candidates on the ballot May 18 at Westmont Hilltop High School near Johnstown. Robert Stacy McCain was on hand, and here's a bit of his reporting on the race.

If you haven't been following this race, there are actually 2 separate elections: first, the more prominent special election between businessman Tim Burns and John Murtha staffer Mark Critz to serve the remainder of Murtha's term, and second, GOP and Democrat primary races for the November general election. (The GOP primary is between Burns, Bill Russell, and Ron Mackell, and the Dem primary is between Critz and Ryan Bucchanieri.)

Below are the candidates' closing statements. Burns is on from about 3:30 to 5:05, and Critz from 6:10 to 8:15. Critz's apology for positions he'd attributed to Burns, which stunned members of the Burns campaign, starts at around 6:50.

Also, I've got some Q&A sessions for the candidates uploaded here and here.
