Bob Casey Wins Third Term In U.S. Senate


Lou Barletta and Bob Casey

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey has won his third term representing Pennsylvania.

Casey, a Democrat from Scranton, beat Republican Northeastern Pennsylvania Congressman Lou Barletta in the race for the seat.

Barletta received support from President Donald Trump after being among the first politicians to endorse him in the 2016 election.

The son of a former two-term governor, Casey has made his name as a relatively moderate Democrat.

The state’s other U.S. senator, Republican Pat Toomey is not up for reelection for four more years.
