PA Lt Gov. John Fetterman Floats 2022 US Senate Bid

The Philadelphia Enquirer reports:

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman says he is taking “a serious look” at another run for the U.S. Senate in 2022, an ambition he plans to share with supporters on Friday. “The 2022 cycle in Pennsylvania is going to be one of the most, if not the most, important races,” Fetterman told The Inquirer in a brief interview Thursday.

Pennsylvania’s open-seat Senate race is already considered one of the most competitive in the country and will help determine which party controls the chamber after the midterm elections. Sen. Pat Toomey, a Lehigh Valley Republican, announced in October that he won’t seek a third term or run for governor in 2022.

Fetterman first came to our attention in 2013 when as mayor of a small Pennsylvania town, he defied state law and performed a same-sex marriage ceremony. In recent months he’s earned a high national profile from media appearances in which he condemned Trump and battled his GOP Texas counterpart, Dan Patrick.
