Trump Tweet: Congratulates winner in primary election

MAY 16, 2018

President Trump sent a tweet of congratulations Wednesday morning to four-term Republican Cogressman Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania, who won the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in the primaries Tuesday.

Barletta, a staunch Trump supporter, will now compete to take the seat of two-term Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, which is predicted to be a tough, uphill battle.

Trump tweeted, “Congratulations to Lou Barletta of Pennsylvania. He will be a great Senator and will represent his people well – like they haven’t been represented in many years. Lou is a friend of mine and a special guy, he will very much help MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
