Bottom Line

President Trump endorsed Rep. Lou Barletta in the Republican primary, calling him “one of my earliest supporters.” He added that the Congressman “Voted for Tax Cuts, unlike Bob Casey, who listened to Tax Hikers Pelosi and Schumer!” However, despite the president’s Pennsylvania victory in 2016, the Keystone State remains an uphill battle for the GOP. Incumbent Senator Bob Casey is favored but will have to work at keeping his job.
