Barletta Vs. Christiana In US Senate Race

Bob Casey, current U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta, backed by President Donald Trump, defeated challenger state Rep. Jim Christiana to take the Republican nomination in Tuesday's primary.

The victor of the three-cornered fight between Wallace, Reddick and Steve Bacher likely will face Republican incumbent Brian Fitzpatrick in November. "Casey and me could not be clearer", Barletta said. Bob Casey this fall. Trump won Pennsylvania by less than one percentage point in the 2016 presidential election. But Barletta is still far behind Casey, who has brought in more than $10 million since the beginning of the cycle.

The state has shown signs of trending Democratic since Trump's historic defeat of Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Ward won out after largely leading the night, garnering more than 70 percent of the vote in the district.

A redrawn congressional map and a string of House Republican retirements gave Democrats more reasons to be optimistic about Pennsylvania.

With 51 of 75 Lawrence County precincts reporting, businessman Paul Mango holds a almost 500-vote lead over state senator Scott Wagner in the GOP governor primary.

Some of Fischer's primary opponents had argued she wasn't conservative enough, but Fischer received endorsements from a majority of the state's elected Republican officials, as well as major farm and business groups. 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.

Casey, who was unopposed for the Democratic nomination, has opposed Trump's Supreme Court pick, many of his highest-profile nominees and the GOP tax-cutting law while emerging as an ardent Trump critic. He will face Rep. Keith Rothfus, R, in November. The victor will face incumbent Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf in November.

While Barletta was heavily favored to win on Tuesday, the congrtessman still faced scrutiny during the primary campaign, particularly over his lackluster fundraising. Voters were also deciding the outcomes in contested primaries for lieutenant governor in both parties.

He paid little attention to his Republican rival during the primary campaign.

"They're exhausted of the same old guard and the same cast of characters who run for reelection every year", says Christiana.
