PG: The prospect of a three-way U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania appeared all but over yesterday as the state Supreme Court rebuffed Green Party Senate candidate Carl Romanelli's bid to get on the November ballot.
The ruling, in a one-sentence order, was good news for the Bob Casey campaign, which had feared that Mr. Romanelli's presence on the ballot would siphon votes from the Democrat. For the same reason, it was a blow to Sen. Rick Santorum and to the Republican donors who had funded the petition drive that sought to establish the Green hopeful's access to the November ballot.
And he is stuck with a $90,000 legal bill. I wonder if the Republican moneybags that financed his petition drive will pony up to pay his lawyers? Sorry, silly question.
Run for President. Run for Senator. But if you don't run for and win races for school board, city council and state rep you guys are going nowhere.
