Lou Barletta wins Republican US Senate primary

Lou Barletta wins Republican US Senate primary

Rep. Lou Barletta was trying to get past his primary challenger, state Rep. Jim Christiana. Bob Casey (D-PA) on Tuesday - but his margin of victory wasn't exactly awe-inspiring.

Trump loyalists propelled one of their own onto the U.S. Senate ballot Tuesday, but Lou Barletta is going to need more than that reliable constituency to win in November in a state where the president's approval rating is hovering around 40 percent. The loyalty won him Trump's early support in the Senate race, as well as recorded telephone calls last weekend featuring the president backing Barletta "fully, strongly and proudly".

Republicans, meanwhile, see Casey's seat as freshly vulnerable, and Barletta has made a point of portraying Casey as soft on immigration, oppositional toward the president and a lackluster working-class advocate, hoping these points will resonate with voters in a state that Donald Trump won less than two years ago.

"When I saw Democrats needed a candidate in Bucks County, I knew I had to step up", Reddick said in a recent online campaign ad.

For the candidates battling for congressional seats, they will all be chosen, for the first time, based on a new congressional map that the state Supreme Court said corrects GOP gerrymandering.

The "Wow basic" one-way fare includes all taxes but excludes meals and check-in baggage, said an NDTV report quoting PTI . Travellers will be able to cop cheap flights from New Delhi to NY via Reykjavik, where the airline is based.

Trump asked Barletta to run for U.S. Senate, the AP added.

Nevertheless, the overload of open seats has resulted in a number of outsized Democratic main fields - reminiscent of within the new seventh District, the place six Democrats had been operating to interchange Republican Rep. Charlie Dent, who has stepped down. Wallace, who has spent heavily on the race, has fought allegations of carpetbagging over his move back to his home state from Maryland after he reportedly was recruited to run. Labrador is a member of the House Freedom Caucus and is regarded as one of the most conservative members of Congress. Pennsylvania first started allowing lieutenant governors to serve a second term in the 1970s. This time, he was defeated by state Sen. He's running against Guy Reschenthaler for the GOP nomination in the deep-red western Pennsylvania district.

In March, Lamb narrowly beat Saccone in a district that President Donald Trump won in 2016 by about 20 percentage points.

Some of Barletta's House GOP colleagues, including Rep. Though Nebraska has elected conservative-leaning Democrats to the Senate in the past decade, pundits nevertheless expect Fischer to be easily re-elected.

"For more than a century, the reelection rate for incumbent senators of the party not in the White House is 91 percent", G. Terry Madonna and Michael L.Young wrote in a February edition of Politically Uncorrected. Republicans sought a more moderate candidate for the race but were unable to persuade other prospects to run.
