Barletta Vs. Christiana In US Senate Race

Barletta Vs. Christiana In US Senate Race

It's primary day in Pennsylvania, where Republicans Lou Barletta and Jim Christiana are facing off for the right to challenge Democratic Sen.

Casey was unopposed in the Democratic primary and will appear on the November 6 ballot across from Barletta, known for his uncompromising take on subjects like immigration and gun rights.

The Republican gubernatorial candidates spent more than $20 million on the primary ballot's marquee race.

The race could determine which party controls the Senate next year.

He ran unopposed on the Democratic ballot. Evans and Boyle represent heavily Democratic districts in Philadelphia.

With 51 of 75 Lawrence County precincts reporting, businessman Paul Mango holds a almost 500-vote lead over state senator Scott Wagner in the GOP governor primary. Barletta is a favorite of Trump, whom Barletta endorsed in 2016.

Their policy differences are just as stark. Labrador is a member of the House Freedom Caucus and is regarded as one of the most conservative members of Congress.

Wolf likely will attack Wagner as posing a danger to programs for children, schools and seniors.

The Braddock mayor's victory Tuesday means he will run on a ticket with Wolf in the fall.

Stack, a former Philadelphia state senator, has had a chilly relationship with Wolf in their first term together. Pennsylvania first started allowing lieutenant governors to serve a second term in the 1970s.

Manager Guardiola said now was not the time for looking ahead to see if they could improve on their league performance next term. This was probably the game in which you can say United lost the title race as City were rampant through the Christmas period.

Wolf past year ordered an investigation into the treatment of state employees by Stack and his wife and stripped Stack of state police protection.

Linda, a realtor whose husband runs the local newspaper, said the economy and health care are the biggest issues to her because she's retiring in a few years and has 13 grandchildren.

The lieutenant governor presides over the Senate and chairs the state pardons board, among other responsibilities.

Congressman Lou Barletta has been serving in the US house for almost eight years. The president is expected to visit Pennsylvania to campaign for him.

Barletta, now a congressman, was heavily favored over state Rep. Jim Christiana to become the Republican challenger for Democratic Sen.

Polls have closed in main elections in Pennsylvania, a state Democrats see as key to their efforts to win again the Home of Representatives in November's midterm elections.

Barletta was a Trump supporter earlier than the 2016 presidential nomination was settled.

Pennsylvania hosted 21 contested primary races for the state's 18 U.S. House seats, the most since 1984. Seven of these 18 seats are vacant, due largely to the departures of 5 Republican lawmakers who both have resigned or should not operating once more. The court mandated a redrawing of the maps. Lamb, who's operating within the new 17th District, has no Democratic main opponent and can meet Republican U.S. Rep Keith Rothfus, who presently represents the outdated 12th District, in November.

Several incumbent candidates who are seeking re-election, like Congressman Dwight Evans, have to fight for re-election in a new district because of the new map. "That's going Democratic", she said.

"I shouldn't say this, but that was a wasted vote".
