It is deciding I’m going to do what is right. Even though the party or lobbyists or bureaucrats are telling me to do the opposite.”On her campaign website, Barnette says, if elected, she will create an economy where corporations don’t have to leave the county to flee the onerous tax system, encourage states to take control of their own healthcare systems, secure the border with a wall, technology, and personnel, and work to secure elections by stopping the federalization of our elections.She received her required signatures and her name, therefore, added to the ballot on March 7.Pennsylvania Senate Race: Who’s running for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania?
