Top PA Senator Candidate Drops Out of Running


The road for Republicans to retake the U.S. Senate is now a little more difficult.

Two weeks only after New Hampshire Governor. Many were disappointed by Chris Sununu’s refusal to run for Senate. A leading candidate in Pennsylvania suspended Sununu’s campaign on Monday.

Sean Parnell, who was supported by Donald Trump earlier in the fall, quit the race after a judge ruled his ex-wife should have custody of their children. This happened after she had accused Parnell of spousal abuse.

Parnell declared he was “devastated”, and said he planned to appeal.

Following a three-day custody trial, the judge made his ruling.

Two-term Republican Senator Pat Toomey currently holds the senator seat. This is due to Pennsylvania being a swing State that flipped back to Democrats in 2020.

Many Democrats, including Rep. Conor Lamb (Lt. Gov.) have made plans to run for this seat. John Fetterman.

Parnell was defeated by Lamb in the 2020 U.S. Congressional race. This author is a former U.S. Army Ranger who earned the Purple Heart while serving in Afghanistan.

The Keystone State primary will also feature Republicans such as Carla Sands, a former ambassador from Denmark, and Jeff Bartos, a businessman. According to reports, celebrity surgeon Mehmet O and David McCormick, a Wall Street executive, are also considering starting campaigns.

Brian Dilsheimer, a Philadelphia-area businessman, told PJ Media that he believes Monday’s news makes Jeff Bartos a Republican frontrunner among declared contenders. “Jeff is an intelligent, skilled businessman with real-world experiences. He is deeply concerned about Pennsylvanians and would do the right thing for them.

According to Wall Street Journal, Trump and his team did not pressure Parnell to quit the race. People familiar with Parnell’s thinking said that he was not expected to endorse another candidate immediately.
