Republican Senate candidate Lou Barletta shared the stage for a speech at President Donald Trump’s rally in Erie, Pennsylvania.
“Bob Casey voted in favor of deadly sanctuary cities, that released thousands and thousands of illegal alien gang members to prey on Pennsylvania’s streets,” President Trump said about Barletta’s opponent, the son of a former Democrat governor whose approval rating has sharply declined in the Granite State.
“How do you have such a liberal guy in the state of Pennsylvania?,” Trump asked, and a person in the crowd mentioned Casey’s father.
“He’s banking on the name of his father. That’s no good. That’s why he needs to be voted out office,” Trump said.
Here are some of the highlights of Lou Barletta’s speech:
“Four million Americans came off of food stamps.”
“There are more jobs than people who are unemployed, and I’ll tell you how good this economy is. This economy is so good even Colin Kaepernick found a job.”
“Who would want to stop that? Bob Casey wants to stop it. Bob Casey went to Washington and forgot about Pennsylvania. He became one of the most liberal senators in Washington.”
“He is so radical that he said he will vote no, no matter who the president nominates for the next Supreme Court pick. He started this craziness…”
“If you don’t like the way Justice Brett Kavanaugh has been treated, then you cannot reward Bob Casey and send him back to Washington ever again.”
“No veterans should ever or will ever die in waiting lines across this country ever again.”
“We’re going to put an end to illegal immigration. We’re going to build the wall. We’re going to kneel when we pray and stand for the flag.”
“No, Mr. President, we are not tired of winning in Pennsylvania. We’re going to win again in November.”
