Several hundred people, including Bikers for Trump, were at a get-out-the-vote rally in Wilkes-Barre Sunday night. One of the messages at the event was that voters should support Representative Lou Barletta, the Republican trying to unseat Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Casey.

 

Oliver North, the retired Lieutenant Colonel and NRA president, and U.S. Representative Tom Marino were among those who spoke at the rally. The message: get and out and vote or face the possibility of a Democratic takeover.

Every year, politicians and political hopefuls turn out for lunch at Penn State’s Ag Progress Days in Pennsylvania Furnace, Centre County.

This year, that included Democratic Senator Bob Casey and Republican U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta.

Casey urged those at the lunch Wednesday to push both parties to make the Farm Bill not just a bipartisan effort, but one that gets passed on time.

In the Republican primary for Governor, Scott Wagner beat out his challengers. The Pennsylvania state senator and waste-hauling millionaire will face Democratic Governor Tom Wolf in November. Polls have Wagner well behind Wolf, though he’ll have 6 months to try to change that.
