Top Trump ally announces Senate run in Pennsylvania

Lou Barletta

Casey, who has been a senator since 2007 because "Pennsylvania deserves better than an obstructionist senator", Barletta said.

The Pennsylvania Democratic Party is kicking off Congressman Lou Barletta's entrance into the race for U.S. Senate with a digital ad campaign welcoming him to the race. Barletta notes his Congressional seat serves a population also dominated by Democrats, though he defeated 13-term Democrat incumbent Rep. Paul Kanjorski in 2010, after Kanjorski fended off Barletta challenges in 2002 and 2008.

There are already nine Republicans in the race including two state representatives that are working to unseat Democrat Bob Casey Jr.

In the video, Barletta - who became a member of Congress in 2011 after serving as mayor of Hazelton for 11 years - claims Casey is "building up a war chest bankrolled by the most extreme liberal special interest groups in the country".

Barletta, 61, was an early Donald Trump supporter and first endorsed the president last March. Casey is running for his third term in the Senate.

Bartos has signaled he'll aggressively fight Barletta, airing a television spot knocking both Barletta and Casey by showing their pictures as a narrator says: "Career politicians make big promises but fail to deliver". The latest was the revelation that Barletta's Senate campaign is listed as one of the clients for BrabenderCox, one of the largest public relations firms in the Pittsburgh area.

"I wish that the establishment, instead of trying to stop Trump, you know, would look at why he's so popular and coalesce around him so that it's one team in November".

"I have been very encouraged by everyone I've talked to", Barletta has stated.
