US Senate race in Pennsylvania takes personal turn

  • 0

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The Republican primary for Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate seat is turning personal, as real estate developer Jeff Bartos slammed rival Sean Parnell for allegations related to his contentious divorce and child custody dispute. Parnell, the Trump-endorsed candidate, accused Bartos of lying and demanded he drop out of the race.

Bartos launched the attack by bringing up restraining orders sought by Parnell’s wife in 2017 and in 2018 during divorce proceedings that are still ongoing. Parnell’s campaign disputed the notion that the temporary orders — granted prior to a hearing involving both parties — were evidence of any wrongdoing. Neither lasted more than a matter of days.
