Murtha has competition for his seat and he is a Lt. Colonel, conservative Republican! You have to watch the video. I got so excited. WooHoo!

According to some sites:
http://williamrussellforcongress.com/
http://vets4russell.blogspot.com/

he needed 1,000 write in votes last Tuesday to be on the ballot in the general election as the Republican nominee for PA's 12 congressional district seat.

Is that true and if so, did he get the votes he needed? I couldn't find anything on it.

He got well over 1,000 but I can't find the article citing this. It also had more info regarding the dirty tactics Murtha used to try to keep him from running. I wish we could all move there to help Russell cream Murtha in a landslide.

Good news! "The Corner" at National Review Online reports the following:

Quote:
Rep. Jack Murtha (D-Pa.) will have an opponent this year after all. A judge had kicked retired Lt. Col. William Russell (R), a veteran of both Iraq Wars, off the ballot earlier this year for lack of valid petition signatures. A legal challenge had winnowed him down to just 993, whereas he needed 1,000 signatures. This gave Murtha a shot at an unopposed victory in the fall, as there were no other Republican challengers.

Russell did not give up, though. To qualify for the November ballot, he had to get at least 1,000 write-in votes in the district yesterday to qualify for the ballot. His consultants saw this as doable, but still a challenge in a primary where there was really nothing happening on the Republican side — not even a decent local race to attract voters to the polls. Considering that Republican turnout was already going to be low, and only a small percentage of voters ever think to write in a name, you might think they'd be lucky to get just enough to qualify.

Well, think again. I'm told that the count now stands at 4,700 write-in votes for Russell, and the largest county in the 12th District hasn't even reported yet — nor have any absentees been counted.

Great finds y'all !!

I was going to move this to the National Office Candidates subforum, but wanted to see if he was still viable or not, so I will move it now. It would be good if we could find more info on him to help all of us be informed.

This is from the About Bill page of his website posted above:

Quote:
Republican – Pennsylvania

William Russell or John Murtha?

“It’s a choice between a corrupt, long time Washington insider who is playing into the hands of the enemy and a new comer with 28 years of honorable Active and Reserve military service to this nation in war and peace.”

“In this war against Islamic Radicalism, the political battle of the 2008 election in the Pennsylvania 12th Congressional District is a turning point of this war.”

Lieutenant Colonel William T. Russell served in the U.S. Army for 28 years of Active and Reserve service, including six tours in hostile fire zones.

On the morning of September 11, 2001, he and his wife, Kasia, who was

pregnant with their son at the time, were working in the Pentagon. Thankfully all escaped unharmed.

While serving in Iraq he saw the bravery and sacrifice of America’s soldiers firsthand. He also saw how this fight against Islamic Radicalism is being made much more difficult because of the words and actions of John Murtha.

William Russell is a true conservative!

Gun Rights - - - - - opposes any attempts to restrict the rights of lawful gun owners.


Border Security - - the government has an obligation to protect our borders and responsibility to never give illegal aliens amnesty.


Tax Policy - - - - - - Wants to eliminate the Death, Marriage Penalty and Capital Gain taxes and make President Bush's tax cuts permanent.


Life of the Unborn - 100% pro-life.


National Security - Starts by standing behind those that are serving on the front lines and giving them the funding AND support they need!

I'm glad everyone is as excited as I am. I, too, can't wait to get rid of Murtha. It is time to use our power and vote these self-centered, self-gratifying, self-focused individuals out of our government. It is time to take back our power and use it to lift America up.

I love coming here. You guys just make me smile! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :D :D :D :D :D :D :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:
