Fitzpatrick: all signs 'go' in 8th CD

It looks as if former U .S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick (R.,Pa.) wants to attempt a comeback in the Bucks County-centered 8th congressional district.

Republican sources say that Fitzpatrick has scheduled a Saturday "announcement about his political future" for Saturday at 1 p.m. at a school in Langhorne, Pa.

He would take on U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy (D.,Pa.), an army veteran of Iraq, who wrested the seat from Fitzpatrick in 2006, the year of voter revolt against congressional Republicans.
