PA Senator Casey not running for president

Local News

Senator Bob Casey says he will not be making a 2020 presidential run.

The longtime U.S. Pennsylvania Senator said in a statement today that he had been considering a potential run for the last two months, but has concluded that now is not the right time to make a run.

Senator Casey said, in part, “2020 is not the time for me to run for president, but it is the right time for me to continue to fight the battles I have fought as U.S. Senator and state official.”

“I have no doubt that our Democratic party will nominate a candidate who can win Pennsylvania and the presidency,” said Casey.
