Congressman Meehan eyeing run against Casey

Fresh off an historic electoral victory, prominent Republicans are already painting a target on Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Casey in the 2018 election. The man they have been talking up to take out the two-term senator: Southeastern PA Congressman Pat Meehan.

Ive been talking to Pat in recent days and it sounds to me that hes seriously considering a run against Casey in 2018, said Charlie Kopp, a lawyer and longtime Republican fundraiser. Being a senator was always something hes had in his vision. So its not like something he decided yesterday; its been put on his mind for years.

Meehan began his career as special counsel to the late U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, later working as a US Attorney and Delaware County District Attorney. He served as a campaign manager for former US Sen. Rick Santorum and ultimately ran successfully for Congress in 2010.

Kopp credited the results of the recent presidential election with energizing Republican ambitions to take out Sen. Casey, a popular but, some would argue, unexciting Democrat.
