The bus used to launch U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster's re-election campaign stopped in Chambersburg Friday so the freshman GOP congressman could make a speech and collect signatures to get his name on the ballot.
Shuster needs the names of 1,000 registered Republicans across the district on his petition. He represents the newly reapportioned 14-county, 9th Congressional District which he said "runs from the Youghiogheny and the Susquehanna rivers and everything in between."
Shuster was elected for a one-year term in a special election in May. He succeeded his father, U.S. Rep. Bud Shuster, who resigned weeks after his re-election to a 14th two-year term.
Bill Shuster defeated Centre County Democrat Scott Conklin to win the seat vacated by his father.
Now he's running for his first two-year term. So far he has three opponents - Democrat John Henry of Bedford, Pa., and Chambersburg Republicans Richard Keller and David Bahr.
