Breaking News: Sources say Barletta will run against Kanjorski
Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta will seek the Republican nomination to the 11th Congressional District seat in hopes of knocking off Democratic U.S. Rep. Paul E. Kanjorski, two sources familiar with his plans said today.
Both sources spoke on the condition they not be named. One of the sources said the official announcement would likely come at a rally Thursday, probably in Hazleton, on the eve of the state Republican Party's weekend meeting in Harrisburg.
