Tiny TV Buy in Quiet Pa-11 Primary (Watch Video)
Wilkes-Barre attorney Bill Vinsko will be the only candidate on TV in the Democratic primary for PA-11, but only just. He’ll air a few ads on Sunday as he seeks to best activist Gene Stilp and face Rep. Lou Barletta in the primary.
So far, the race been quiet – a battle for name ID. The candidates have sent out a few mail pieces between them, and Stilp has cruised the highway in his pig-shaped bus.
The district, which was reshaped to protect Barletta, stretches from Shippensburg in southcentral Pa. to Wyoming County in northeast Pa.
Vinsko had $31,262.78 at the end of the quarter, Stilp’s report has yet to be received by the FEC (he says it was sent in), but he says he’s raised just under $25,000.
