The Buffalo News reports that

President Bush today signed a bill renaming part of Route 20A near Ralph Wilson Stadium [in Buffalo] after Tim Russert.

The bill, which Congress passed overwhelmingly, renames the section of the highway between Abbott Road and California Road “Timothy J. Russert Highway.”

And:

The renamed highway won’t be the last tribute to Russert if a group of his local admirers gets its way. More than 400 people have signed an online petition calling for Buffalo-Niagara International Airport to be renamed “Tim Russert Buffalo International Airport.”

Also: the New York Post’s Page Six “hears” that “Luke Russert made such a good impression on TV viewers after his father Tim’s funeral, insiders say NBC is recruiting him for its team covering the presidential election.”
