Hazleton Mayor Jeff Cusat Declares Victory in Primary Election

HAZLETON, Pa. -- Hazleton Mayor Jeff Cusat has declared victory over Republican primary challenger Allison Barletta.

Barletta is a cousin of former Hazleton mayor and U.S. congressman, Lou Barletta. Barletta was elected to city council two years ago.

Poll workers at the Southside Fire Station in Hazleton say crowds have been similar to a presidential election.

Cusat is seeking a second term in office, noting his administration's tough stance on crime. Cusat was a Hazleton City Council member who easily won a primary over Joe Yanuzzi and defeated Democrat Jack Mundie in the general election in 2015.

Cusat will face Democrat Bob Yevak in the general election in November.
