Race Analysis

10/30/10 -- Hazelton Mayor Lou Barletta and Congressman Paul Kanjorski are facing off for the third time this decade.  Kanjorski has come under fire for his support of the President's health care bill and cuts to Sallie Mae.  But Barletta has lost twice already, and while Kanjorski's polling numbers are weak, Barletta is almost universally known at this point and he hasn't shown an ability to get above 50 percent in the polls.
