There is no secret in the political world that Tom Leighton and John Yudichak have been battling hard for the senate seat after Senator Ray Musto announced his retirement in the 14th district. Leighton has been campaigning side by side with Todd Eachus even to the point that they parked by Mayor Lou Barletta's house in the Terrace section of Hazleton as a sort of "poke in the eye" strategy.
As John Yudichak has reiterated throughout the campaign and quoted in this Standard Speaker article "The mayorLeighton) at the end here was making some wild allegations and trying to intimidate me and bully me as he has done with citizens here in the city of Wilkes-Barre who criticize him," Yudichak said.
Here is a picture of a campaign worker holding a Leighton sign in front of Barletta's campaign headquarters in downtown Hazleton. Todd Eachus's office is directly across the street. It appears Leighton wants to misinform the public that Barletta supports him by having this person campaign on the side of the street where Barletta's office is located, not Eachus's office. Typical Leighton and Eachus bully tactic.
