According to a story by Tricia Miller at CQ Politics an internal poll conducted by the Lou Barletta campaign shows that Barletta is leading Kanjorski 56% to 37%.
A poll commissioned by his campaign shows Hazleton Mayor Lou Barletta (R) leading 13-term Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D) 56 percent to 37 percent.
The Tarrance Group surveyed 400 likely voters on July 12 and 13. Its poll has a margin of error of 4.9 percent.
This is the third time Barletta has challenged Kanjorski.
He lost in 2002, and in 2008 he held Kanjorski to less than 52 percent.
Barletta announced his first TV ad buy earlier this week, a 30-second spot that is now airing on cable and network TV in the Scranton-Wilkes Barre market.
