Political Clippings

CQPolitics.com reports that Rep. Vito J. Fossella, the only Republican in New York City’s House delegation, is again being challenged by lawyer Stephen Harrison, the Democrat who ran an unexpectedly close race against him in 2006. The 13th District takes in Fossella’s base of Staten Island — the most suburban and most Republican-leaning of the city’s five boroughs — and a small chunk of Brooklyn, including Harrison’s home. Fossella ran up 70 percent there as recently as 2002, but Harrison held him to 57 percent as a first-time candidate who was unheralded, underfinanced and largely ignored by national Democratic Party strategists.

The Free Lance-Star in Fredericksburg, Va., reports that former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore, who recently ended his bid for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, hasn’t stopped campaigning. Gilmore told the daily he’s traveling the state to explore a possible campaign either for the Senate next year or the governor’s office again in 2009. Gilmore said his interest in the Senate race hinges on whether Sen. John W. Warner, R-Va., decides to retire. Warner has not yet announced that he would seek re-election, and some observers suggest he will not.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Hazleton, Pa., Mayor Louis Barletta, a Republican who became nationally known through his town’s campaign to drive out illegal immigrants, is considering a challenge to Rep. Paul E. Kanjorski, D-Pa., next year. Barletta said he’ll decide by January. “I like being mayor, but everybody knows I’ve been disappointed by Washington’s inaction on immigration reform,” he said. Pennsylvania GOP Chairman Rob Gleason said Barletta is probably the only challenger who could oust Kanjorski, who beat Barletta by 22,000 votes in 2002.

Political Trivia

While in junior high school, Sen. John E. Sununu, R-N.H., says he observed firsthand his mother’s work as a school board member; her experiences taught him the importance and difficulties of public service. During his father’s campaign for governor in 1982, when Sununu was 17, he watched statewide politicking as he drove his father to campaign appearances around the state.
