Pennsylvania Senate candidate Kathy Barnette joined 'Fox News Sunday' to discuss her platform and scrutiny surrounding her social media presence and military record.

Pennsylvania Senate GOP candidate Kathy Barnette on Sunday addressed past tweets on Islam, which have called her viability in the general election into question, while stressing "Democrats have their own issues" regarding a candidate who held a Black jogger at gunpoint in his neighborhood years ago.
