The Congressman will face Democratic Senator Bob Casey, a complete disciple to the wishes of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), otherwise failing to distinguish himself as a back-bencher with little done in office other than adherence to the party line. He was the heir-apparent to his father, a much more moderate man in thought and action and likely feels he should be elected to a third term as an entitlement. Barletta, a big supporter of terms being limited to two in the Senate, notes that Casey's defeat would be the quickest way to meet the standard by sending Casey home in November.
Adding a second Republican Senator to the Senate from Pennsylvania would also be an important step to ending many of the stalemates on the Trump agenda. And since he is significantly more supportive than the other Republican Senator, Pat Toomey, his addition would be especially valuable. If the voters of rural and small town Pennsylvania, the same people who helped Trump defy the odds in 2016, show up and vote in large numbers, the chances of Barletta becoming a new Senator are highly improved. He is a good campaigner with promised support by the President himself, and that's a truly positive sign.
Pay attention, Pennsylvanians, for the opportunity for an even better future awaits if you make the right move. Soon, we'll look at some other important seats up for grabs as the pre-election cycle for the 2018 Congressional elections keeps rolling along. It's all about cleaning the swamp.
