Chris Carney update
10th Congressional District candidate Chris Carney will be in Wilkes-Barre tomorrow for a shindig at SLÃINTE! Formally the Murry Inn. It's being hosted by Wilkes-Barre Mayor Tom Leighton, Scranton Mayor Christopher Doherty& Lackawanna County Commissioner Mike Washo. It was postponed from June 28th when our local officials had more pressing matters to deal with. If you're interested in going the details are here.
Carney's fundraising has been strong, from an email:
"We will report over $290,000 cash-on-hand and over $170,000 raised in the last 21 days of the quarter," said Carney campaign manager Andrew Eldredge-Martin.
"This huge surge in fundraising, from both republican and democratic sources, proves that the 10th District is ready for a Congressman who will represent our values and our interests in Washington," said campaign Republican Co-Chair Susan S. Belin of Waverly, PA.
"Chris Carney will fight to solve our healthcare crisis and high gas prices, and he will always stand up for our troops and our veterans," said campaign Democratic Co-Chair Marvin Rudnitsky of Selinsgrove, PA. "Chris Carney will take our values to Washington and fight for our families and for our future."
When I talk to people up north the one word I hear about Don Sherwood is "disgust." That comes from both sides. Every news story about Sherwood ends with he settled a $5 million dollar lawsuit with a 29 year old mistress.
