Ex-NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) will campaign in Wilkes-Barre “soon” on behalf of Hazleton Mayor/PA-11 candidate Lou Barletta (R).
Barletta adviser Vince Galko said 6/26 that camp staff have been in talks with Giuliani’s staff to have Giuliani appear in Wilkes-Barre to support Barletta’s bid. Galko “said Giuliani offered his assistance to Barletta.” Barletta will face off against Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D) in Nov.
Giuliani is expected to speak at Gennetti’s Hotel and Conference Center in Wilkes-Barre on 7/19. “Other details of the visit have not yet been finalized” (Long, Wilkes-Barre Times Leader, 6/26).
