U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., has announced plans to lead a series of town hall meetings throughout Pennsylvania, with the first to be held on March 12 in Philadelphia.
An exact location and time for the first town hall haven't been announced.
A statement from Casey's office said the reason for the town hall-style meetings is because that’s what the public is requesting.
"Having heard the demand of constituents for town hall-style events, Casey will convene this event to engage directly with his constituents," the statement said.
There has not been any word from Pennsylvania's other U.S. senator, Pat Toomey, R-Pa., on hosting in-person town hall meetings, despite a strong urging from his constituents, including from weekly demonstrators with the group Tuesdays with Toomey.
