US Senator Bob Casey Decides Against Run For President

Pennsylvania US Senator Bob Casey says he has decided not to run for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president. He had announced back in November that he was exploring a possible run. Casey released a statement today that says in part:

“2020 is not the time for me to run for President, but it is the right time for me to continue to fight the battles I have fought as U.S. Senator and state official. I have no doubt that our Democratic Party will nominate a candidate who can win Pennsylvania and the Presidency.”
