51st State

Barron for Congress

Posted by azi on February 8, 2006

Charles Barron will announce his bid to take on Edolphous Towns. Barron will formally declare his candidacy at 3 p.m. on Sunday on the steps of City Hall.

“It was his political machine I beat to get into the  Council,” Barron told 51st State.

When asked about fundraising, he said, “I would need less money than most to launch a credible campaign, because of his name recognition. And who doesn’t know Charles? It also helps that Barron’s entire councilmanic is in Town’s congressional district.

More coming up.

Hat Tip
Amsterdam News noted Barron’s intention to enter the race (last line) earlier.  Crain’s Insider had the story too.
