Delaware County businessman Paul Addis; Cynthia Ayers; Paul DeLong; Bobby Lawrence; and Joseph VodvarkaJeff Bartos, a real estate developer, withdrew from the raceLibertarian Party member Dale Kerns is also running.A news release from the Barletta campaign said it’s no surprise Pennsylvania’s Senate contest is being touted.“Barletta announced his Senate candidacy in late August of 2017 and in only one month brought his cash on hand to $1 million,” the release stated“During a visit to Pennsylvania in mid-October, President Donald Trump offered strong support for Barletta’s Senate bid, saying that Barletta is going to ‘win big’ and has a ‘tremendous surge’ of support.”In November, the entire Pennsylvania Republican congressional delegation endorsed Barletta, stating in a letter that Barletta “is a straight shooter who is not afraid to stand up and fight for the people he represents.”Casey has been a vocal and staunch opponent of Trump’s agenda, going so far as to call for the president to resign last month — a move for which Casey was immediately criticized by members of his own party, including former Pennsylvania GovEd Rendell. .neFileBlock { margin-bottom: 20px;
