A candidate running for one of our local congressional seats makes a stop in Lehighton over the weekend.

Republican candidate Dan Meuser held a campaign event at the Lehighton American Legion on Saturday.

Meuser is seeking Lou Barletta's vacant seat in what was the former 11th District.

With the redistricting of the state congressional map, he is now running in the new court-drawn 9th District.

"It's up to us to get out and do everything we possibly can and work even harder in the counties included in the 11th, in Lou Barletta's former district, and work even harder in the additional counties," said Meuser.

The newly drawn 9th District includes all of Carbon, Columbia, Lebanon, Montour, and Schuylkill counties, as well as parts of Northumberland, Luzerne, and Berks.
