Is Kanjo worried about Barletta?

A few weeks ago I got this glossy piece (left) from our own Congressman Paul Kanjorski paid for by me and you. The congressional frank is a wonderful thing for incumbents.
Today's news says he has signed onto the The Secure America with Verification and Enforcement (SAVE) Act. Other sponsors are Presidential candidates Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.) and Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.)
The act mandates that all employers to use an online E-Verification system to confirm the person is eligible to work in the U.S. and adds 8,000 border patrol agents.
The bill will also provide money to build more detention centers, rail lines and has funds for doctors and an orchestra to facilitate the speedy removal of illegal immigrants already in the country.
Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta won an overwhelming reelection victory and the rumours are flying about his next move. Will he run for Congress, a statewide office next year or go for broke in 2010 with a bid to be Governor? Josh says Kanjo is not taking any chances and John has the most entertaining recap of the Hazleton results.
