Smith's latest internal: Smith 35%  Rohrer 16%  Welch 10%

31% of likely voters are undecided.

Yeah, word is spreading in GOP circles that state leaders think Smith will win.

Smith can't win against Casey though. And why isn't Welch on the air anymore in Philly?

It's not likely that Welch would win either, but, at least, it would be better attempt..

Even if he can't win, I still want him to take funds away from others states the Dems have to defend. Smith doesn't seem like he can do that.

Not sure if he'll go back up starting to today but he doesn't have the kind of money many thought and doesn't even come close to what Smith is willing to spend.

Word from higher ups is that Welch is done/Smith has this.

Before he dropped out, Santorum was giving an interview in which he stated how he was the first Conservative to "break through the glass ceiling" in what had been a moderate to liberal state GOP. He then said that "some people want to see us go back to that kind of party in PA".

Was he referring to Welch's candidacy, by any chance?

No, I think that was a swipe at the establishment in the state that was opposed to him during his candidacy for President.

And Santorum wouldn't bash Welch. Brabender is consulting for Welch.

Does Smith have any redeeming qualities other then his willingness to spend money? Does he have a lot more where that came from?

I guess we have six more years of Bob Casey Jr. What a disgusting decision for Republicans to back Smith.

Dude, in all honesty, did you think we were favored to beat Casey with anyone else? I mean, I guess your point is that this guarantees it but it was always a steep uphill battle.

You probably needed Tom Ridge for that)) And even in that case - 50/50..

Smith wins easily and Casey's nobody opponent gets 19%. The former? Expected. The latter? What the hell?

Well, Casey is a lame Democrat (and it's not just abortion).

The Democrat bench in Pennsylvania looks cooked now, with Altmire, Holden, Sestak, and Murphy all now proven losers.

I wonder who they have left to run against Corbett and Toomey.

Chaka and Brady?  Ha.  I doubt the Schwartz would be with them either. 

At this point...this is going to sound real silly, but could Ed Rendell be the best potential challenger against Toomey in 4 years (a long time I know)?

A small commentary to your signature, bullmoose88:

You really do. 30-40 years ago there was a plenty of moderate and even liberal Republicans, just as their opposites - really conservative Democrats. Now American politics became hyperpolarized, bland and dull (with some rare exceptions): in 98% of all cases you may almost perfectly describe candidate's political positions simply by looking at letter after his name.. Boring...

LOL! We could never get that lucky. I think Schwartz will be too old in 2016.
