WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster, R-Pa., stated Monday that his Democratic opponent Tony Barr has failed to file a Personal Financial Disclosure form that was due May 15, an allegation the Barr campaign denied. A formal complaint was filed with the U.S. House Committee on Standards of Official Conduct, according to the release from Shuster's campaign committee. The disclosure report is supposed to list a candidate's major sources of income, assets, debts and any corporate board on which he serves, the release stated.

CHAMBERSBURG -- Franklin County Democrats and Republicans apparently agree on two things - Pennsylvania will be a crucial state in the presidential election in two weeks and getting out the vote will be the top priority in the final two weeks. That was the message to GOP voters on Monday night at an event in Waynesboro, Pa., and the call to Democrats on Tuesday at their fall dinner. "You never play looking at the scoreboard," said Tony Barr, the Democratic nominee for the Ninth District seat to the U.S. House of Representatives now held by Republican Bill Shuster.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- For the second time in two years U.S. Representative Bill Shuster appeared to have beaten back a challenge from Democrat nominee Tony Barr in his bid for re-election to the ninth District seat in the House of Representatives. According to complete but unofficial results, Shuster received 171,636 votes, or 64 percent, to 97,237 for Barr. Shuster's margin of victory appears to be at least equal to that of his 2006 race against Barr, but he will be returning to a House that he said will have about 20 fewer Republican seats.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Tony Barr's first foray into elective politics is a big one. The Blair County special education teacher seeks to unseat Ninth District U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster in November. "We were angry, we were appalled ... that there was no one to hold Bill Shuster accountable for the state of the nation and the votes he's taken," Barr, 37, said before addressing a group of about 30 people Tuesday evening in the Franklin County Democratic Committee Headquarters. The Claysburg, Pa., man, who teaches in the Everett School District in Bedford County, said he collected at least 1,775 write-in votes in the May 16 primary, enough to become the Democratic nominee.
