Brett Lieberman is reporting on an article picked up by GrassrootsPA that Rick Santorum may be eying the Governor's mansion in 2010. That would set up a primary with Bob Asher's puppet Tom Corbett. The end of Ed Rendell's second term is sure to fuel a wide open race, especially on the GOP side. Jack Wagner certainly seems to be the clear front runner for Democrats.
Santorum doesn't seem to grasp how disliked he is in Pennsylvania. Perhaps if he lived here the last numerous years he'd have a clue. Of course he'd have to abandon his nice digs in Virginia and relocate to the Keystone State to even qualify. Maybe then he'd begin to comprehend why he never rose above 41-43% in the polls during his Senate race. Pennsylvanians are fed up with Rick Santorum, his residency issues, milking the Penn Hills taxpayers to pay for his kid's schooling, and his extreme political positions.
The sooner Rick Santorum understands he's political persona non grata in Pennsylvania the sooner he can look elsewhere (Richmond anyone?) for his political future.
