(AmericanProsperity.com) – Democratic Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey announced during a Monday morning interview with The Associated Press that he will run for reelection next year, representing a significant decision that many believe could work as a thermometer for the 2024 presidential election, considering that Pennsylvania is one of the most important swing states in the country.
Casey’s decision could make him serve a fourth term in case he wins, which could extend his record as the longest-serving liberal Senator in the history of this state. While the AP points out he is promising to keep fighting for blue-collar families and target all “corporate special interests” in Pennsylvania, critics believe this same narrative might not work after three terms representing the swing state in the Upper Chamber.
During the interview, Casey said he’s planning to conduct an intense campaign where he’ll be visiting every single county in Pennsylvania in order to “earn every vote,” and show people he’s still fully committed to solving their problems. He also said he’ll focus his campaign on reducing prescription drug costs, as well as bolstering hydrogen power plants, infrastructure and domestic semiconductor production. Finally, he pointed out that his reelection campaign will show that he’s willing to fight for the state communities and not back down from any fight.
While it remains unclear who will represent the Republican Party in Pennsylvania’s Senate elections, many believe that the potential challenger that Casey will face next year is David McCormick. Many analysts believe he has a big chance of beating Casey, considering that the state GOP is expected not to support any Trump-backed candidate, following Dr. Mehmet Oz’s poor performance against John Fetterman in the last Senate race. He beat McCormick in the 2022 Senate GOP primary and is expected for this party not to take the same step, which in this could be voting for Doug Mastriano, who has already been endorsed by the former president and has suggested a possible run.
