Democratic Sen. Bob Casey will face U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta in November.

Trump chastised Sen. Bob Casey, whom Barletta hopes to defeat in the general election, for serving as a cheerleader for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

Another man said he doesn't hear local Democrats talking about specific issues, instead focusing their attention on President Trump.

Casey, a fierce Trump critic, is seeking a third six-year term. In addition to Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Idaho and OR held nominating contests.

The primary for Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate race has been relatively quiet but the outcome could have compelling implications.

As for Senator Casey, he put out a statement saying this is a race between a US senator who stands up to President Trump when he is wrong versus a candidate who thinks President Trump can do no wrong.

Pennsylvania state Rep. Rick Saccone, who lost a special election two months ago to Democrat Conor Lamb for a congressional seat, has now lost a two-way Republican primary for a different U.S. House seat. Barletta, a staunch President Donald Trump supporter, captured the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate.

"Trump has not been particularly successful in translating his own popularity with his base to voters from that base for other candidates", said University of Pittsburgh political scientist Kristin Kanthak.

Democrats will also pick a candidate in the 5th District, an area vacated by former GOP Rep. Patrick Meehan, where the Democrats are all but certain to make one of the 23 pickups they will need to take control of the House. He faces state Sen.

At The Pines Eatery in downtown Hazleton, an energetic Barletta declared victory at 10:06 p.m.

Social worker and political newcomer Kara Eastman has won the Democratic nomination for Nebraska's 2nd Congressional District. Fischer is expected to face Lincoln City Councilwoman Jane Raybould, a Democrat, in the general election. The governor's race attracted a crowded field of Republicans.

Barletta raised nearly $3 million to Christiana's $274,000 but spent little of it on the primary, which he appeared to view as a small hurdle on the track toward November. The victor will face incumbent Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf in November.

His opponent in November, Casey, of Scranton, has served in the U.S. Senate since 2006.

In Idaho, a competitive Republican primary for governor featured three leading candidates: Rep. Raúl Labrador, a founding member of the hard-right House Freedom Caucus; Lt. Gov. Brad Little, who had the support of outgoing Gov. C.L.

Nebraska Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts faced a primary challenger, but he was favored to win his party's nod, as well as a second term in November.
