Lance withdrawn from CNN’s 100 most vulnerable

The CNN 100, a list of the nation’s 100 most vulnerable House races, has been updated, and U.S. Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Lebanon) and the 7th District are no longer included.

Four freshman and sophomore Republicans, Reps. Brian Bilbray of California, Pete Roskam of Illinois, Erik Paulsen of Minnesota, and Lance have been dropped. “Although they all represent districts President Obama carried in 2008, their opponents have yet to make significant in-roads,” according to CNN.

Four Democrats replaced them on the list: Reps. Betty Sutton of Ohio, Jim Himes of Connecticut, John Yarmuth of Kentucky, and Nick Rahall of West Virginia.

Lance faces a general election challenge from former Bridgewater-Raritan High School science teacher Ed Potosnak of North Plainfield.
