Tuesday's primary will narrow GOP gubernatorial, Senate fields

Barletta Vs. Christiana In U.S. Senate Race

Lamb, who's operating within the new 17th District, has no Democratic main opponent and can meet Republican U.S. Rep Keith Rothfus, who at present represents the outdated 12th District, in November.

President Donald Trump backed two successful U.S. Senate nominees in Pennsylvania and Nebraska, which were among four states holding primaries Tuesday.

Barletta's campaign said Saturday it sent a recorded telephone call of Trump criticizing Casey and telling hundreds of thousands of registered Republicans why he supports Barletta "fully, strongly, and proudly", CNBC reported.

Another man said he doesn't hear local Democrats talking about specific issues, instead focusing their attention on President Trump. These results are unlikely to calm their nerves.

"I think it's great that we are finally doing something about gerrymandering and I hope this makes more people go out and vote because their votes actually count now", said Diane Dalto.

Casey, a fierce Trump critic, is seeking a third six-year term.

Democrats' path to a possible House majority starts with several seats in the Philadelphia suburbs, and the party will pick its candidates there in Tuesday's primary.

The primaries began to settle swing state Pennsylvania's chaotic congressional landscape after a court fight ended with redrawn districts just three months ago.

The four-term USA representative emerged the victor in Tuesday's primary election, defeating state Rep. Jim Christiana of Beaver County. The victor will face incumbent Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf in November. The 58-year-old Scranton native is the son of the late former governor, Robert P. Casey, and is possibly the best-known political name in Pennsylvania. Casey is one of 10 democratic senators who represent a state won by Trump in 2016.

Nebraska is a reliably Republican state. Guy Reschenthaler in the GOP primary for the deep-red 14th District in western Pennsylvania.

In March, Lamb narrowly beat Saccone in a district that President Donald Trump won in 2016 by about 20 percentage points.

Expect Barletta to try to tie Casey to Senate liberals like Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, whose policies are too far left for many Pennsylvania moderates.

Vice President Mike Pence did take to the social media platform to praise Barletta's win, however, tweeting: "CONGRATS to my friend @LouForSenate in his big Pennsylvania primary victory tonight".

Eastman defeated former Rep. Brad Ashford in Tuesday's primary election with a campaign that cast her as a champion of liberal ideals, including supporting a single-payer health care system.

"For more than a century, the reelection rate for incumbent senators of the party not in the White House is 91 percent", G. Terry Madonna and Michael L.Young wrote in a February edition of Politically Uncorrected.
