Businessman Meuser Set to Run for Carney’s Seat

Wealthy businessman Dan Meuser (R) announced this week that he has filed paperwork to run in what is already a crowded Republican contest to face Rep. Christopher Carney (D) in the 10th district. Meuser owns and manages Pride Mobility Products, a company with more than 1,000 employees in northeast Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, businessman Chris Hackett (R) announced that he had $245,000 in cash on hand at the end of the third reporting quarter, $100,000 of which came in the form of a loan from the candidate himself.

A Carney spokesperson said the campaign has raised $800,000 so far this year and is on track to raise $1 million by the end of the year.

Retired teacher Don Ely (R) also has announced he is running, while former New Jersey state Sen. John Scott (R) and former TV weatherman Vince Sweeney (R) are said to be considering bids.
