Constitution Party candidate enters Pennsylvania U.S. House race

Pennsylvania’s Bucks County Courier Times reports farmer Jay Russell has entered the state’s Eighth U.S. House District race as the Constitution Party candidate. The newspaper says Russell “has run for a series of offices, including state representative, township supervisor and county commissioner” over the past 15 years, “but has never won an election.” Russell said he “knew he had little chance to win in November. ‘Miracles happen, but the odds are against me,’ Russell said. ‘I want to give people a real choice.’” Democratic incumbent Patrick Murphy is seeking re-election; Republican Tom Manion and independent Tom Lingenfelter, who briefly ran for lieutenant governor as Libertarian Russ Diamond’s running mate in 2006, are also in the race.
