One former Republican congressman from Hazleton is hoping to send another GOP Hazleton native to the halls of Congress.

According to a release on Monday afternoon, Jim Bognet, a former Trump administration appointee who is attempting to unseat Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Lackawanna) in the 8th Congressional District, has named former Congressman Lou Barletta as the Honorary Chairman of his Congressional Campaign.

“I am honored to have Congressman Barletta join our fight to take back Pennsylvania’s Eighth District for the people. The leadership and service Congressman Barletta showed during his time in Congress will be a true asset to our campaign,” Bognet said in a statement. “No one has fought harder for our District than our friend Lou, and we could not be more excited to have his guidance and support.”

Bognet previously worked on Barletta’s congressional campaign.

Barletta described Bognet as a “strong conservative voice” for the 8th District and someone who will “proudly work” with President Trump.

“I am thrilled to be joining Jim Bognet in his campaign to be a strong conservative voice for the people of this District in Congress. Jim learned hard work at his family construction business, growing up pouring concrete and digging ditches,” Barletta said in a statement. “We need someone in Washington who will stand up to China, defend our police from the radical ‘defund’ movement, and fight illegal immigration. Jim will proudly work with President Trump and deliver for our District in supporting his America First agenda.”
