Republicans choose Barletta to face Casey in US Senate race

U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta will challenge U.S. Senator Bob Casey in the fall. Bob Casey (D-PA) on Tuesday - but his margin of victory wasn't exactly awe-inspiring.

President Donald Trump is supporting Republican Lou Barletta (right) - a member of the U.S. House of Representatives - in Tuesday's U.S. Senate primary in Pennsylvania in the hopes that Barletta can unseat Democratic U.S. Sen. He ran unopposed on the Democratic ballot. Barletta was a Trump supporter earlier than the 2016 presidential nomination was settled. "Barletta, but if the president has a successful year and his numbers rebound, Barletta could win this race", said Chris Borick, a pollster and political scientist at Muhlenberg College. But strategists in both parties believe Casey, who has stockpiled almost $10 million for the campaign, has the advantage.

Mary Gay Scanlon won a 10-way Democratic primary and Madeleine Dean won a three-way Democratic primary on Tuesday night for two suburban Philadelphia seats that are likely to flip to Democrats following a court-ordered redrawing of the state's congressional district boundaries.

Lamb, who is running in the new 17th District, has no Democratic primary opponent and will meet Republican U.S. Rep Keith Rothfus, who now represents the old 12th District, in November.

Barletta and Republicans like him across the country are taking a different tack than Democrats did in 2014 when, aware that the president's party tends to lose seats in midterms, they distanced themselves from Barack Obama. Wallace, who has spent closely on the race, has fought allegations of carpetbagging over his transfer again to his residence 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.

And exports of goods and services slowed, rising 0.6 percent compared to an increase of 2.2 percent in the previous 3 months. Japanese government officials expect the decline to be temporary .

And in Oregon, Republicans are choosing their candidate to take on Democratic Gov. Kate Brown in the fall.

The two-term senator is a native of Scranton and the son of a former Pennsylvania governor.

Within the gubernatorial main, the opposite large Republican race, state Sen. Casey is "Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi's guy, and he's been a disaster in the Senate". He has won five statewide elections, served as state treasurer and auditor general, and won his 2012 Senate election by more than 9 percentage points.

However, the overload of open seats has resulted in several oversized Democratic primary fields - such as in the new 7th District, where six Democrats are running to replace Republican Rep. Charlie Dent, who has stepped down.

But she faces a hard race: Idaho hasn't elected a Democratic governor since 1990, and the Republican Party now controls a supermajority on all federal, state and legislative seats.
