Toomey Gaining on Specter

Here are three articles from ’National Review Online’ on next Tuesday’s GOP Senate Primary in Pennsylvania by John Miller , Timothy Carney , Paul Kengor .

Recent polls show Toomey gaining ground on Specter. Those polls have Toomey trailing Specter by 5 points which is within the margin of error. Two weeks ago Specter lead by 15 points. Tim Carney argues that it would help Bush win Pennsylvania in November if Toomey wins the nomination. Carney says conservatives will stay home in November if Specter is on the ballot. Paul Kengor argues that the main issue separating the two is abortion.

Regarding a Democratic readers earlier comment, that he would relish running against Toomey in November, I can only say that Toomey is no more conservative than Pennsylvania’s GOP Senator Rick Santorum.

"Regarding a Democratic readers earlier comment, that he would relish running against Toomey in November, I can only say that Toomey is no more conservative than Pennsylvania’s GOP Senator Rick Santorum." I think Toomey would have trouble in November unless they can manage to keep the voter turnout in Philadelphia environs under 125 percent. ;-)
