PA GOP: Desperation Sets in at Kanjorski Campaign, Has to Pay for Support
As the Times Leader Endorsed Lou Barletta for Congress Today, Kanjorski Finally Gets Motivated to Create Jobs. Unfortunately They are Save His Own

HARRISBURG – Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason found it ironic that Democrat Paul Kanjorski has resorted to offering “volunteers” $10 an hour to help his floundering campaign:
“It looks like the only time Congressman Kanjorski creates jobs in the 11th district is when he’s in danger of losing his own,” Gleason said. “How ironic it is that this job creation is fueled by his own demand to save his political career. Only after his own job came into jeopardy has Kanjorski begun to feel the fear and desperation that his own constituents have faced over the past two years as they dealt with an economy that was devastated under his leadership as the region’s unemployment rocketed into the double-digits.”
“With a regional unemployment rate that’s the highest in the Commonwealth, the people of the 11th congressional district deserve a leader who will work to create jobs even when it’s not an election season. On November 2nd, the people of the 11th district will show that they want to bring pack prosperity, opportunity and real jobs with Lou Barletta as their Congressman.”
With Election Day less than two weeks away and his support continuing to plummet, Congressman Paul Kanjorski has begun a new campaign to create jobs in order to save his own. As polls have consistently shown Lou Barletta holding a strong lead in the race, the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader came out to officially offer its endorsement, saying Barletta’s “business sense, leadership background and, most definitely, his bold independence make him the solid choice to send to Washington, D.C.”
In Scranton, passers-by were greeted with signs outside Kanjorski’s campaign headquarters offering to pay $10 to anyone willing to support the campaign.
