Barletta Officially Enters the Senate Race

Barletta announcementCongressman Lou Barletta (R-Luzerne) officially announced he is entering the race to challenge Senator Bob Casey next year.  

Barletta launched his website and a video announcement early this morning.  

“After talking to Mary Grace and our family, many people across Pennsylvania, and saying a few prayers, I have decided to run for the United States Senate,” Barletta says in the video.  

Barletta told GOP leaders he would be entering the race at the end of July, but had not made a public announcement. 

The Pennsylvania Democratic Party responded to the announcement, going immediately on the offensive.  

“Pennsylvania’s families and seniors need a Senator they can count on to fight for them. An ethically challenged congressman like Lou Barletta can only be counted on to fight for himself. The commonwealth deserves better than Congressman Lou Barletta,” Democratic party spokesman Max Steele said in a statement.  

Barletta’s website had launched for a few hours late last night before being put back behind a wall until the announcement this morning.  

Barletta joins state Reps. Rick Saccone (R-Allegheny) and Jim Christiana (R-Beaver), Borough Councilmen Andrew Shektor and fellow businessmen Paul Addis, Jeff Bartos, and Bobby Lawrence in the race.

    Bob Casey did it before in 2006 and he will do it again.

  3. Louis Lack says:

    This is very retro for GOP. Can you say Klink?

  4. ERIEVOTER says:

    Down with the Casey regime. He has long forgotten his nepa roots. Take a stroll through Scranton/Wilkes Barre and see what he has done for his hometown area let alone the same for the rest of the state. You have lived off your fathers legacy enough. MOVE OVER

  5. Skook says:

    Lou has nothing to lose, trump will give him a job after his devastating defeat, that is if trump is still around in 2019

  6. guy says:

    are those his actual teeth? kinda look like veneers

    1. Sweet and Salty says:

      If he was a woman there would be 35 replies to this about how it’s sexist to talk about someone’s looks..

    2. Frank Burns says:

      They don’t call him “Choppers” for nuthin’.

  7. JoePa says:

    Who is this senator Casey? I’ve never heard of him, never seen him in the state before, and can’t find a single accomplishment from him. Does he really exist?

  8. John Galt says:

    Bye bye Bartos, Christiana and Addis.

    1. Mark says:

      So Rick Saccone is still in it in your mind? That guy sure is a force to be reckoned with lol

  9. Phil Hughes says:

    Sweet Lou is gonna win the primary and will probably get spanked in the general thanks to his good pal, Donald J. Trump. With sagging polls and continued toxicity, Lou will lose. However, that doesn’t mean Casey can sit on his laurels. He really needs to be more visible even though he hit the ground running earlier this year. PA doesn’t NOT need another Trumpie.

    Another PoS floating in the flood waters of GOP hate.

      Breathe water.

  11. Nick Fazio says:

    Casey vs Barletta vs Kerns. Should be interesting.

    1. Hugya says:

      …vs. Bartos vs. Christiana vs. Addis vs. Mickey Mouse

      What a cluster

      1. Nick Fazio says:

        I meant the general but yeah. It’s like Cheaper by the Dozen here.

    2. EvilBobCaseyIV says:

      PLEASE STOP WITH THE KERNS COMMENTS LOL Arlen Spector has a better shot at getting back to the Senate than Kerns. Hell, Nick you have a better shot.

      1. Nick Fazio says:

        He has a fairly decent shot. I support him and will continue to.

        1. Rick Santorum Jr. Jr. says:

          Eye roll. You and only you. I doubt that guy’s mother knows he’s running.

          1. Nick Fazio says:

            You’re not dissuading anyone. His support keeps growing.

          2. Sweet and Salty says:

            His support is growing by the dozens!

      2. Mark says:

        EvilBobCaseyIV thank you for saying what we’re all thinking
