Don Manzullo announces today he is seeking a ninth term in Congress. In his eight previous wins he's always received at least 55 percent of the vote. In addition, since 2000 Manzullo has never amassed fewer than 60 percent. Manzullo is currently a member of the House Financial Services Committee. He's also the chairman of the Republican Policy Committee's Task Force on Manufacturing. He says that's the key to getting out of this economic instability.
"We can't buy ourselves out of this recession. We have to manufacture ourselves out of it. The only way to do that, people have to go back to work, we need to restart the supply chains in order to restart the economy," says Manzullo.
Manzullo will be challenged in the 2010 general election by Democrat and current Freeport Mayor George Gaulrapp.
