Torrington's Hamburg Enters Congressional Race

Torrington, WY – A Torrington man announced he is running in the election for Wyoming's lone seat in Congress. Al Hamburg says he will participate in the Democratic primary, even though he was kicked out of the party in 1996. The 72-year-old Hamburg says the Republican party doesn't care for blue collar workers and he'll make job creation and stopping illegal immigration priorities. He was convicted of a felony for forging signatures on a petition to create a new party. However Hamburg says state and local elections officials framed him.
