McCain coming to Wilkes-Barre

CV: McCain, R-Ariz., will host a question-and-answer luncheon and fundraiser in the Wilkes-Barre area on July 23, former 10th Congressional District Republican candidate Dan Meuser said. Meuser, who lost the GOP primary to Chris Hackett, will serve as general chairman of that event.“I was told he wants to be able to meet with as many people in the area as possible,” Meuser said. “Right now all I know for sure is I’m going to be the general chairman of one event in Wilkes-Barre, and that they want to host another event somewhere else either before or after the lunch.”The events’ times and locations have not been set, Meuser said.

The Yonk has two good questions: how much will it cost and what kind of seat will Chris Hackett get?

According to last 2 polls from Rasmussen and Quinnipiac Obama is up in Pennsylvania by 4 to 12 points so we can expect both candidates to visit us many times before November. For a rundown on all the state by state polls check out my new favorite electoral college tracking site FiveThirty Eight. The cross tabs from the Q poll shows Obama leading in NEPA 46-42%.
In other Presidential news Hillary and Barry have kissed and made up and will campaign together in Unity, NH. From the newspaper in Barre,VT: The location, announced Monday, was chosen not only for the symbolism of its name, but because each candidate received exactly 107 votes there in the Jan. 8 primary.
BTW Barre, VT is named after Isaac Barre just as Wilkes-Barre is and they pronounce it berry. I know, I've been there.

McCain's people are looking into the Kirby Center as a possible location.

Is there a way we can keep them BOTH out of our state ? I'd rather watch paint dry ! Well unless Obama girl or McCains wife makes an appearance.

What I'm trying to say is I'd rather have another 4 years of Bush.

You can be sure the new Luzerne County Republican chair (aka ass kisser) Terry Casey will be there!
This is the lowest the Luzerne County Republican Party has ever fallen - putting a worthless piece of garbage like him into the role of chair...

Gort--think Hackett even gets a seat at the table? My guess is that Meuser hates him so much after that nasty campaign that his invitation gets lost in the mail.

Hackett isnt going to get much of a seat. He's alienated most of the
republicans who support him, I am not sure McCain will be excited to see
someone like Hack at the event--someone who pisses all the Republicans off
which is why half our party is coming out as republicans for Carney.

Hackett will get a seat if he has the balls to leave Madeira and Birmelin at the office. Those two will be the kiss of death for his campaign. Most of the party leaders can stomach Hackett because he is the party nominee. It's mutt and jeff that gives them heartburn.

FUCK JOHN MCCAIN. As far as the Luzerne County GOP, they've got nothing with this new suit. Same old shit with the big money people in the background.

The party would be better served if we had Madeira who has moral values.

I'm sure that you are a dried up Meuser piece of snot 12:32. You're only happy when you have the same old rat pack.
