President Donald Trump on Wednesday slammed Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., while offering praise for Rep. Lou Barletta, R-Pa., winner of the Republican nomination for the Senate run.
"Lou Barletta will be a great senator for Pennsylvania, but his opponent, Bob Casey, has been a do-nothing senator who only shows up at election time," Trump tweeted Wednesday.
Casey, the two-term incumbent, was unopposed for the Democratic nomination, Fox News reported.
"Lou has established himself as tireless advocate for Pennsylvania families, and his strong record of success will undoubtedly lead him to victory over Bob Casey," said National Republican Senate Committee executive director Chris Hansen in a statement, the Fox News report said.
