Pennsylvanians are prudent
Santorum is toast
In my years working with politicians from Pennsylvania, there is something that I concluded: when the elections are over, Republicans and Democrats collaborate for the sake of the state. People work together in Pennsylvania for the good of the state and its electorate over politics.
Something changed in recent history, however. Part of the change came from the death of Congressman Murtha, setting off a sea change. Part of it came from the demise of Senator Arlen Specter. Incidental was the booting out of Rick Santorum.
Voters gave Rick the boot. Do they want him back? Do they think voting for him will earn any points down the road with the Republican nominee? Since the nominee isn’t going to be Rick, PA voters will bet on the sure thing, Mitt.
In the long run, PA voters’ bread will be buttered by Barack.
“Romney sweeps 3 primary contests, eyes general election battle
Published April 04, 2012
Mitt Romney’s campaign is moving straight into Pennsylvania after completing a three-contest primary sweep on Tuesday night, as he looks to close the deal in the Republican nominating contest by challenging Rick Santorum on his home turf.
Pennsylvania is just one of the five states voting in the next set of primaries on April 24. Santorum, though, is portraying the contest as a game-changer – predicting victory in the delegate-heavy state he used to represent in Congress.
