I was saddened to find that Lou Barletta didn`t make it into Congress, since Tom Tancredo is retiring, we need more people like in Congress. I see that they brought out the big guns to campaign against him. The Hotline Blog reports
Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-PA 11), one of the cycle`s most endangered Dems, has held on to beat `02 nominee/Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta (R), 52-48%. Barletta was one of the GOP`s best recruits this cycle, but Kanjorski survived.

And in PA-12, reports of Rep. John Murtha`s (D) demise were greatly exaggerated. He beat back ret. Army lieutenant colonel William Russell (R) by a surprisingly easy 59-41% score.

Pres. Clinton campaigned for both in the waning days of the campaign, and each touted the money they brought back to their districts as a reason to return them to DC.

I don`t know why Bill Clinton is still in public life. Ann Coulter doesn`t think he should be even in private life.
