I voted for Peg Luksik in the Republican gubernatorial primary in 1990. She was completely unfunded and ran strictly by word of mouth against the designated Republican foil, the pro-abortion Barbara Hafer. She came close to upsetting Hafer that year, and that primary set the stage for Hafer’s defeat by Bob Casey in one of the most lopsided races in history.

Hafer later completed her totally unsurprising conversion to the Democrat party and endorsed Fast Eddie Rendell for Governor.

Thanks!

Yes, he does...with the GOP working against him. Too conservative...?

Yeah I saw that, too. At least her name is spelled right in the story.

My thought is that Murtha won’t lose, because my own sister lived in Tom Foley’s district and she continually voted for the SOB because ... “He does wonderful things for our district.”

Of course, Wikipedia has wiped out the Peg Luksik entry.

Alas, the American people enjoy the lying, stealing, and cheating. They think they will get something out of it.

I wish that fat tub of sh#t would just ....... nevermind.

I hope that Mr. Murtha is voted out of office. Vacations for a couple of months and then just putters around the house with nothing to do.

He'll drink more, and tell everybody that he knows at the club how important he used to be.... He'll look himself in the mirror and realize that without honor, no amount of money and leisure time can make him more of a "man" than he was as a Marine willing to lay his life down for his brother Marines and realizing that there are things more important than ouselves... our country, our honor, our family and our brother Marines.

I hope he finds himself all by himself, sitting on a stool with a Colt 1911, a bottle of scotch and too much time on his hands.....

worthless POS.....makes me want to puke just thinking about his shank in the back of combat Marines.....and all the other butt munchers in his district that vote him in. They must just be proud as punch to have this so called "man" represent them in congress.

Is there any genuine hope that your district will dump the fired Admiral and shameless carpetbagger Joe Sestak?

It's going to be tough, as it seems the local pols aren't going to push too hard. I found an article in The Evening Bulletin about the Williams/Sestak match here in my CD PA-07:

The only way that Murtha will lose is if he dies before the election. Democrats do not care about sleeze or integrity. They will just vote for the D, even if the candidate is caught with $90,000 in the freezer. Murtha was outed in 2006 with the release of his bribery tape. He was opposed by a very good female candidate. He still won by 20 points. His opponent looks like a fine man but he has a huge uphill battle.

Good to see you, Doll! Others beat me to a reply, so I’ll just say, thanks for the support!

Naturally, none of us know whether Russell can go all the way or not. But we have to fight the good fight whether the odds are in our favor or not. Miracles do happen everyday.

I also contributed (a first time political contribution for me) to the hero’s campaign. And it felt real good! Even if in 2008 many GOP candidates go down to defeat, just defeating that schmuck Murtha would lessen the sting.

I encourage the rest of you to contribute likewise!
