Casey recently announced the town hall meetings in response to the demands of constituents requesting face-to-face conversations. Details on his additional town halls have not yet been announced.

Pennsylvania's other U.S. senator, Pat Toomey, R-Pa., hosted a live-streamed Q&A on Facebook on March 6 but has not set a date for an in-person town hall, despite a strong urging from constituents, including from weekly demonstrators with the group Tuesdays with Toomey.
