The race of US Senate comes to our region as the Republican nominee campaigns in Erie.
A meet and greet at Waldameer Park gave supporters a chance to speak with Lou Barletta. The Congressman from Hazelton is challenging Democratic Incumbent Bob Casey.
Barletta talked about the desire to become a key Republican vote in the Senate. He also suggested Casey is out of touch. “We need that kind of support in Washington who actually represents the people of Pennsylvania, not the people of California. That’s what I believe has happened to Senator Casey. I believe he’s moved so far left, he represents California, not the people of Pennsylvania.”
Barletta has been in the House of Representatives since 2011.
