U.S. Rep. Mark Critz's re-election campaign is looking for a boost on Thursday from a rally in Beaver with President Clinton.

Clinton is scheduled to appear with Critz, D-Johnstown, at 5:30 p.m. in the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 712 union hall on Sassafras Lane, Critz's campaign said. Admission is free.

“President Clinton's record of creating jobs while balancing the budget is something that I try to emulate in Congress, and I am honored to have him campaign for me,” Critz said in a statement.

Critz, 50, is running against Republican Keith Rothfus, 50, a lawyer from Sewickley.

Political analysts give the edge in the race to Critz, a former top aide to Rep. John Murtha, who died in 2010, but the candidates agree the outcome could be close in a newly drawn district that stretches from Beaver County to Cambria County and favors Republicans by registration.

Clinton, 66, is coming to Western Pennsylvania to kick off the annual Pittsburgh Speakers Series presented by Robert Morris University with a speech at 8 p.m. Thursday in Heinz Hall. His speech, and the rest of the 2012-13 series, is sold out.
