Leading Republican Launches Another U.S. Senate Bid In Battleground Pennsylvania

A noted Republican has a plan to unseat the Democrat majority in the Senate next year by knocking off one of its long-serving incumbents.

Dave McCormick said on Thursday he believes he can be a “force for good” as he attempts to defeat Democratic Sen. Bob Casey in what will no doubt be one of the year’s most closely-watched races.

McCormick, a former hedge fund executive, West Point graduate, Gulf War combat veteran, and Treasury Department official in former President George W. Bush’s administration, on Thursday launched his second straight campaign for the Senate,” Fox News Digital reported.

His announcement provides national and state Republicans with a prominent candidate who possesses the capacity to self-finance. McCormick had been approached to consider running against the incumbent Democratic in a race that could potentially determine whether the GOP regains control of the Senate in 2024, the outlet noted.

“I have total faith and confidence in the people of Pennsylvania,” McCormick said, going on to emphasize the need for leadership in Washington, D.C.

“That is why today, I am announcing my candidacy for the United States Senate,” McCormick said while launching his candidacy at Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh.

Asked why he sought to run again, McCormack told Fox News Digital, “The motivation is the same in the sense that I really feel that the country’s headed in the wrong direction.”

“Whether it’s the immigration crisis or the economy or record high inflation, whether it’s the war on our domestic energy sector, I think the need to get great leaders into public life who can really make a difference and be independent and try to break the gridlock in Washington, which is failing us, is key,” he told the outlet.https://t.co/OlRPVnvToG

McCormack then focused on Casey, a three-term senator whose father was governor of the state, tying him to President Joe Biden and his basement approval ratings.

“Bob Casey is an 18-year senator. He’s been in politics for 30 years and really hasn’t accomplished very much at all. He’s been a rubber stamp for Joe Biden. He’s voted for Joe Biden 98% of the time,” McCormick said. “If I can win this seat, I can really be a force for good in pushing back on Joe Biden’s policies.”

Casey isn’t expected to face any serious Democratic primary competition for his seat.

Fox News Digital added:

McCormick may escape a crowded and combustible battle for the 2024 GOP Senate nomination similar to the one he faced last year. McCormick ended up losing the nomination by a razor-thin margin to celebrity doctor and cardiac surgeon Mehmet Oz, who secured a primary victory thanks to a late endorsement from former President Donald Trump. Oz ended up losing the general election last November to now-Democratic Sen. John Fetterman.
