11th Congressional District: Republican Lou Barletta vs. Democrat incumbent Paul Kanjorski

Mr. Barletta is the courageous mayor of Hazleton, where he was one of the first mayors in the nation to take a stand in the critical battle against the invasion of illegal aliens. He faces one of the true dinosaurs of the House in Mr. Kanjorski, seeking his 13th term. They also met in 2002; Kanjorski handily dispatched Barletta.
