TL: U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Bucks County, will be in Wilkes-Barre around 1 p.m. Sunday to speak at the official grand opening of the Obama’s Wilkes-Barre office, 41 S. Main St. Murphy also will appear in Wilkes-Barre’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade on Sunday. He will sign copies of his book, “Taking the Hill: from Philly to Baghdad to United States Congress” at the Barnes & Noble Bookstore on Public Square.
The first and only Iraq War veteran serving in Congress, Murphy is the brother of Wilkes-Barre Administrator J.J. Murphy.
Hillary was in Scranton for the parade today and O'Bama will be speaking to Society of Irish Women dinner at the Radisson in downtown Scranton at 7 p.m. Monday and will appear at an event sponsored by MTV News at Whistle’s Pub & Eatery on Franklin Avenue before that. Both events are by invitation only. WTF? Note to Obama campaign; rent the Wachovia Arena in W-B Twp. because I'm sure you can fill it.
