Torrington Man Enters House Race

Laramie, Wy – Another person has entered the race to try and unseat Congresswoman Barbara Cubin.
Al Hamburg from Torrington announced he will run in the Democratic primary. Hamburg is 72 and says he does not necessarily expect to win, but will speak his mind. He says a priority should be the creation of jobs, which he says can be done by stopping the flow of illegal immigrants into the country.
Hamburg was convicted of a felony for forging names on a petition to create a new party. He says he was framed by local and state officials. Hamburg also entered his dog in the 1984 presidential election. He says he was trying to make a point that his dog was a better candidate than most of the other people running.
