Congressman Lou Barletta (R-Luzerne) announced he U.S. Senate campaign is starting 2018 with just over $1 million on hand.

“Our campaign has built great momentum heading into 2018.  The response we have received in only a short time has been inspiring,” Barletta said in a release announcing the total.

    Casey has $8.6 million cash on hand.

  2. Jo Walker says:

    I’ll be interested in seeing which big money donors he acquires this year. Let’s see who he’s really working for.

  3. No shot says:

    How much does Casey have…$4-5 million? This boob has no shot to seriously take on the Casey machine. This Trump lover also stands zero chance of diluting enough SEPA votes to win statewide. Wagner/Barletta will doom any Republican running in SEPA all while losing their own races. Good work, PA GOP!

  4. Robert B Sklaroff, M.D. says:

    he’ll do well

  5. jim says:

    That’s not enough to run a serious campaign for the U.S. Senate in PA.
