Rep. Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania trails by five percentage points. Spratt has served in Congress for 28 years, Boyd for 13 years, Edwards for 20 years and Kanjorski for 26 years.

To show just how disadvantageous it is to be an incumbent this year, a majority of those polled in the four longest-serving incumbents’ districts said it was a reason to vote against the congressman.
