The LuLac Edition #575, Sept. 17th, 2008
PHOTO INDEX: SENATOR BARACK OBAMA AND HAZLETON MAYOR LOU BARLETTA.
Challenger Lou Barletta seems to be closing in on long time Congressman Kanjorski. In the latest poll, he's in the 40s and Kanjorski is stuck at 35% with 17% undecided. It seems the Kanjorski campaign is all over the place. To get those undecideds, they need to do the following:
Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee, will endorse John McCain for president on Wednesday, her spokesman tells CNN. The announcement will take place at a news conference on Capitol Hill, just blocks away from the DNC headquarters. Forester will “campaign and help him through the election,” the spokesman said of her plans to help the Republican presidential nominee.

ABORTION AN ISSUE?
Apparently not so much. An MSNBC poll shows that 58% of those polled would not vote for a candidate based on their views of abortion.
