Combat veteran Sean Parnell, former Congressional candidate who was a strong Trump supporter, is expected to launch a Senate Campaign to succeed GOP Senator Pat Toomey, who is retiring.
Parnell earned a Bronze Star and a Purple Heart as an Army Ranger who served in the war in Afghanistan.
Parnell narrowly lost to Conor Lamb after raising $4 million in a run for Congress.
Per Fox News “the open seat battle in Pennsylvania is one of just a handful of races that will likely decide whether the Democrats retain their razor thin Senate majority or if the GOP regains control of the chamber in next year’s midterms – which will also greatly influence how much President Biden would be able to accomplish in the final two years of his current term in the White House.”
Donald Trump Jr. tweeted in February that “My friend @SeanParnellUSA is a strong America First conservative and has my support for any office he decides to run for in 2022!!!”
