Vice President Mike Pence will headline a fundraiser for Pennsylvania’s Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, Lou Barletta. Republican Party chairman Val DiGiorgio said Wednesday that he expects the July 23 event in Philadelphia will raise $300,000 to $400,000 for Barletta, who has badly trailed Democratic Sen. Bob Casey in campaign cash. Casey is running for a third term. No independent poll puts Barletta within striking distance of Casey, although Barletta is a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump and Republican officials expect Trump will come to Pennsylvania to campaign for Barletta.
