Pennsylvania: Local Democrat Enters Race Against Kanjorski

Lackawanna County Commissioner Corey O’Brien announced over the weekend that he will run against longtime Rep. Paul Kanjorski in the Democratic primary.

“I’m running for Congress to replace the old-style politics with new-style leadership, by promoting job growth, encouraging health care reform, holding myself to a higher ethical standard and working to strengthen our children’s educational opportunities,— O’Brien said in a news release.

Kanjorski won re-election over a popular local mayor with 52 percent of the vote in 2008. President Barack Obama carried the district by 15 points.
