I heard Mayor Lou on Corbett yesterday hemming and hawing about running for Congress again and said he will finally make up his mind Friday. The suspense is killing me. As a local blogger there would be nothing better than to have a race that would shoot right to the top of one of the most watched Congressional contests in the country. This would almost be as good as the 10th CD.
Trying to help him make up his mind some local Republicans have been gathering signatures on nominating petitions. The local papers give us the details:
Barletta petition signing begins
County GOP joins ‘Draft Lou’ drive
Luzerne County Republican Chairwoman Lynette Villano is spearheading the drive. That's good news for Lou because she is such a vote getter.
