Trump returning to Pennsylvania to stump for Kelly, Barletta

October 3, 2018

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — President Donald Trump is making another visit to Pennsylvania, this time to Erie where one of his staunch supporters in Congress is facing his toughest re-election battle yet.

Trump’s campaign said Wednesday that the president will hold a rally at Erie Insurance Arena on Oct. 10. Four-term U.S. Reps. Mike Kelly and Lou Barletta are expected to attend, and Trump will headline a fundraiser for the men while there.

Kelly is facing a challenge from Democrat Ron DiNicola while Barletta is mounting an uphill campaign to unseat two-term Democratic U.S. Bob Casey.

Trump was in Philadelphia earlier this week, at the Flight 93 memorial in southwestern Pennsylvania on Sept. 11 and in Wilkes-Barre in early August for a rally with Barletta.
