ABSCAM Jack Murtha gets a challenger!

It will be Lt. Col. William Russell, who was kicked off of the ballot for only having 993 out of the 1000 signatures required. Writes David Freddoso:
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.


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.
Sounds good to me. You can go here to donate to Lt. Col. Russell's campaign.
