Running for the United States Senate is the last thing Lou Barletta ever expected to do.
After college and working in the private sector running his own business, Lou entered politics.
Frustrated with the direction that local politicians were taking his hometown of Hazleton, Lou successfully ran for City Council before being elected mayor in 1999, in a city where Democrats significantly outnumbered Republicans.
Lou gained national attention in 2006 when he drafted, introduced, and signed the first local ordinance in the nation cracking down on illegal immigration. Lou’s law has served as a blueprint for other communities across the United States facing problems with illegal immigration.
In 2010, Lou defeated a 28-year incumbent Democrat to represent Pennsylvania’s 11th Congressional District. Lou currently serves on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Economic Development, Public Buildings, and Emergency Management and has saved the taxpayers nearly $4 billion by cutting waste and reducing the size of federal real estate; the Committee on Education and the Workforce, where he has been nationally recognized for his bipartisan work in support of after school programs; and the Homeland Security Committee, where he has continued to lead the fight to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws.
A father of four daughters and proud grandfather of eight grandkids, Lou is running for the United States Senate to make sure that the same American Dream he experienced is alive for the next generations of Americans.
