  • U.S. Sen. Bob Casey rallied Northampton County Democrats to his re-election effort Wednesday afternoon, painting his campaign against Republican challenger David McCormick as a fight to protect American democracy and stick up for the common man against corporate interests.
  • He described the 2024 election cycle as one of the most important of our lifetimes, saying the outcome would determine outcomes essential to American life, including the future of Social Security and Medicare, voting rights, reproductive rights and the right to form a union. 
  • Northampton County Executive Lamont McClure credited the Scranton native with protecting the region’s vibrant economy. At the height of the pandemic, Casey secured nearly $88 million of funding for Northampton County school districts so they could continue providing lessons for children. He also brought in tens of millions of dollars for extra funding for Easton and Bethlehem and voted in favor of the CARES Act, which kept hundreds of small businesses afloat through the worst of the pandemic, he said.
  • “Senator, in no small way thanks to your work in the United States Senate, those small businesses are open and thriving today, and we thank you,” McClure said.
  • About 50 people, including Easton Mayor Sal Panto Jr., Bethlehem Mayor J. William Reynolds and Northampton County Controller Tara Zrinski, attended Casey’s event and nodded in agreement and applauded his efforts to protect organized labor and reproductive rights.

  • Casey was at the Luzerne County Democratic Party headquarters Monday for a discussion on women’s rights. […] Casey began the discussion by stating, “We can’t lose focus on what is at stake in this election. Voters must decide what they want — democracy and voting and women’s rights, or insurrectionists.”
  • Casey said the overturning of Roe v Wade has resulted in bans being instituted across the country.
  • Casey said he has fought for women’s rights throughout his career in the Senate. As a member of the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions, and the Committee on Finance, Casey said he has a record of writing and enacting legislation that makes a difference for women in Pennsylvania. He said he fights for equal pay for equal work, more access to child care, paid family leave, and to end discrimination.
  • Casey said he has spoken out on the back-door attempt by right-wing politicians to implement a nationwide abortion ban. He believes our daughters and granddaughters should not grow up with fewer rights than their mothers, and he said he voted for the Women’s Health Protection Act in 2022.
