Pennsylvania U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta is projected to defeat state Rep. Jim Christiana in Tuesday's Republican primary to determine who will face incumbent Democratic Sen. Bob Casey in November.

With 65 percent of precincts reporting, Barletta led Christiana by more than 80,000 votes out of more than 361,000 cast. The four-term congressman will face an uphill battle against the two-term incumbent Casey and Fox News' current projections show the seat is likely to remain in Democratic hands.

"Lou has established himself as tireless advocate for Pennsylvania families," National Republican Senate Committee Executive Director Chris Hansen said in a statement, "and his strong record of success will undoubtedly lead him to victory over Bob Casey and his history of flip-flopping on the issues that matter to Pennsylvanians."
