Voters to cast primary ballots in four states today
Lamb, who's operating within the new 17th District, has no Democratic main opponent and can meet Republican U.S. Rep Keith Rothfus, who at present represents the outdated 12th District, in November. Bob Casey (D-PA) on Tuesday - but his margin of victory wasn't exactly awe-inspiring.
On Saturday, Barletta's campaign said it sent out recorded telephone calls of Trump criticizing Casey and reminding hundreds of thousands of registered Republicans why he supports Barletta "fully, strongly, and proudly".
Casey is unopposed for the Democratic nomination. These results are unlikely to calm their nerves.

Republicans and the White House view the Senate contest between Mr. Barletta and Mr. Casey as one of their best opportunities to flip a seat. Bob Casey in the general election.
Democrats' path to a possible House majority starts with several seats in the Philadelphia suburbs, and the party will pick its candidates there in Tuesday's primary.

But she faces a hard race: Idaho hasn't elected a Democratic governor since 1990, and the Republican Party now controls a supermajority on all federal, state and legislative seats. In March, Democrat Conor Lamb won a special election in a Pittsburgh-area district where Trump beat Clinton by 20 percentage points.
To the west, Democrats are watching a House primary in Nebraska, where former Rep. Brad Ashford - a conservative "Blue Dog" who lost to Republican Rep. Don Bacon in 2016 - must hold off progressive Kara Eastman before he gets a rematch with Bacon.
