GOP moderates in tough spot in swing districts

FILE - In this April 29, 2013, file photo Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, R-Pa., speaks during a news conference at the at the Garden of Reflection memorial to local victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, in Yardley, Pa. Fitzpatrick always had been expected to face a tough re-election fight. Then he sided with GOP leadership and a tea party insisting that a federal spending plan to keep the government open must delay or defund President Barack Obama's health care law. Now, with the partial government shutdown stretching into its second week, Fitzpatrick's bid for a second term may be growing even more challenging. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File)
