Pennsylvania GOP Senate Candidate Kathy Barnette Has Everybody Worried (Including Trump) That She Could Win Race

In the hours after Fox released a poll this week showing Pennsylvania Republican US Senate candidate Kathy Barnette locked in a statistical tie with primary opponents Mehmet Oz and Dave McCormick, allies of former President Donald Trump went to work trying to stifle her momentum. To sow doubt about her conservative bona fides, they circulated one of Barnette’s tweets from July 2020 featuring the hashtags #BLM and #DefundThePolice — two rallying cries deployed by racial justice activists that Republicans seized on during the last election cycle.

Irony here is that Barnette is the type of candidate the GOP should want: she’s a true conservative on social and fiscal issues, she’s Black, she doesn’t hate Trump and she’s a populist. I’m certainly rooting for her.
