Fetterman to Announce LG Candidacy Tuesday
According to the Inquirer, Fetterman will announce the bid tomorrow, becoming the third person to officially announce a challenge to Stack.
Fetterman ran for U.S. Senate in 2016, eventually coming in third out of the four candidates, finishing behind Katie McGinty and former Congressman Joe Sestak.
From the Inquirer:
Instead, Fetterman will be talking about Braddock, the 0.65-square-mile burg that rose and fell with the steel industry. Fetterman has drawn national attention for his efforts to reinvigorate the town, where 37 percent of the 2,118 residents live below the federal poverty level.
The New York Times, Rolling Stone, and the Atlantic published articles about Fetterman before he entered last year’s Senate race. More attention followed. He appeared last month on CNN’s Parts Unknown, dining and talking about economic revitalization with host Anthony Bourdain. And I hear HBO’s Vice News Tonight is about to air a piece about Fetterman and Braddock.
More of that is sure to follow, the kind of “earned” media that candidates embrace to tell their stories. For now, it seems, Stack will continue to lie low and watch it all heading his way.
Neither Fetterman or Stack provided comment to the Inquirer.
