Tom Ridge or the female House candidate in 2004, the doctor - what was her name again (KP was an avid supporter, he should know her)?

Ridge isn't doing it. I won't even bother to put together a serious response for the second "possible candidate."

Can you at least tell me her name, anyway?

Melissa Brown, I'm guessing (lost to Allyson Schwartz). She'd be another candidate for OPHTHPAC to support, at least.

How am I trolling? I just asked a question because I was amused by your coy response to feeblepizza's insinuations.
If you don't want to answer, fine by me.

I am not being silly, I just want to know what the woman's name is because I think that she would be a good contender against Casey in '12. After all, she made a pretty good performance in '04 against Schwartz, did she not? Is it Melissa Brown? Or is it Mary or Marie or something?

Yeah, her name is Melissa Brown and no, she didn't have a good showing in 2004. She had a good showing in 2002.

You know, Phil, when a 12 year old properly schools you about too much drama, maybe its time to turm it down a notch. Grin

Rumor is that former State Representative and 2010 Gubernatorial candidate Sam Rohrer is considering a run for the Senate (or Auditor General).

I like Rohrer. He's a good guy, a man of unquestionable integrity. I voted for him in the Gubernatorial primary. That being said, Casey would love to face someone like Rohrer. I think I said Ridge vs. Casey would be one of the most boring statewide elections here in modern times. Casey vs. Rohrer would be even more of a snoozer.

State Senator Jake Corman won't run - http://www.statecollege.com/news/local-news/corman-not-running-for-us-senate-in-2012-he-says-797097/

Not the best of news for Republicans. Unless a deal was made to clear the field for one of the businessmen, this probably means others will pass on an "un-winable" race.

Bob Casey Raises $1.3 Million in 2nd Quarter

Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey (D) raised $1.3 million in the second quarter and had $3.1 million in cash on hand at the end of June, according to the Pennsylvania Democratic Party.

"Sen. Casey set another fundraising record by posting his strongest quarter yet," Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairman Jim Burn said in a press release.

Casey has yet to attract a well-known opponent. The two declared GOP candidates are attorney Marc Scaringi, who raised just $22,000 in the first quarter, and tea party organizer Lauren Cummings.

Casey raised $1.1 million in the first quarter and had $2.1 million in cash on hand at the end of March.

Sorry Phil, but I'm not following this race; all the high-profile Republicans were elected in 2010, and Casey is a near-perfect fit for PA based on his political positions. A 2006 rematch would be fun but result in the same curbstomp.

Funny enough, I was at an event today and some friends of mine that are usually critical of Santorum thought he could win if he ran against Casey. I highly doubt it. It wouldn't be the "same curbstomp" but Casey wouldn't have a problem unless things really got bad nationally.

I guess; it wouldn't be close, but Santorum wasn't far from the PA GOP's floor.

The latest Quinnipiac poll: Casey's approval rating is at 48% and disapproval is at 29%. 47% say that he deserves to be re-elected while 33% say he doesn't. 47% would vote for Casey compared to 35% that would vote for a generic Republican.

http://www.quinnipiac.edu/x1327.xml?ReleaseID=1630


This just confirms that we'll need a very weak Obama to have a chance at winning here and even then it's probably unlikely (especially since numbers like these will continue to keep major candidates out of the race).  Sad

I would say unless you guys can get Tom Ridge, there's virtually no shot.  Rohrer has no shot at the Philadelphia suburbs.
