Capitol Notes: Rating governors, senators and food
Friday, May 12, 2006 Pittsburgh Post GazetteBy Tom Barnes and Tracie Mauriello, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette -- Russ Diamond, the independent candidate for governor, is going to be seeking a lot of signatures from voters on primary day.
To get onto the November ballot, the Lebanon County businessman needs more than 67,000 signatures of registered voters, a daunting task.
But this week, his candidate petition was downloaded from his Web site (www.russdiamond.org ) more than 1,100 times. Also, 115 petitions have been sent out to supporters through regular mail.
Each Diamond supporter with a petition will be asked to collect at least 100 signatures at the polls Tuesday.link
