PA Sen: Barletta Channels Trump in 2nd Ad

Help me. Help President Trump.

Barletta’s second television advertisement shows the GOP candidate for Senate alongside Trump at a MAGA rally, held earlier this month in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

“We want to secure our borders, we want to put an end to illegal immigration once and for all,” Barletta says in the ad. “And we want to take a knee to pray and stand for the flag.”



In the 30 second advertisement, titled ‘Rally’, Barletta also touts support for law enforcement and veterans before he echoes the well known Trump talking points at rallies and concludes the address by linking his candidacy to Trump’s agenda.

“Help me, help President Trump,” Barletta says. “Drain the Swamp and Make America Great Again.”

The Barletta campaign dubbed Casey as beholden to “liberal handlers” in a comment promoting the ad.

“Congressman Lou Barletta will stand up for the people of Pennsylvania on the issues that matter to them,” said campaign spokesman, David Jackson. “While Lou’s radical opponent Bob Casey only works to please his liberal handlers in Washington, Lou Barletta has never turned his back on the people of Pennsylvania. Lou Barletta will take care of our vets, honor our military, secure the border, and give our law enforcement and first responders the respect they deserve.”

PoliticsPA is seeking comment from the Casey campaign and will update the story.

Barletta’s first advertisement, titled ‘Shame’, released last week centered around school safety.

In Casey’s most recent ad, released a couple of weeks ago, the incumbent attacks Barletta over Social Security and Medicare funding.

  1. This ad is so horrible, it is as if Jason Gottesman brought it up out of his daily coffee enema.

  2. Standing or kneeling, Lou is a fiscally irresponsible big government omnibus spender. No different from Casey. Vote Dale Kerns.

  3. Well that’s one way to completely alienate the Philly suburbs and lose the election…

  4. Trump petulantly refused to follow protocol and lower the flag for a veteran who spent 60 years in public service, in and out of uniform. I don’t want to hear anything about respect for the flag or veterans from someone who trashed a Gold Star family and POWs, and I don’t want to hear it from some Trump sycophant who fancies himself the second coming of Trump either.

    If Barletta had an ounce of integrity, he’d uphold his oath to the Constitution and take seriously his responsibility to act as a check and balance on the Presidency.
