The Fascinating Pennsylvania Governor's Race

Without a doubt, one of the most fascinating elections to watch this year will be the Pennsylvania Governor's Race where Democratic incumbent Ed Rendell is seeking a second term. Today, the race took an interesting twist as Republican challenger Jim Panyward dropped out(Hat tip: Swann Blog). Now it's a two man race with Hall of Fame receiver Lynn Swann taking the Republican nomination.

Anyone who watched the standing ovation Swann received at the Super Bowl a couple of weeks ago can see that he is still incredibly popular. He's also very handsome, intelligent, and articulate, all of which make him a very appealing candidate.

This should be a fun race to watch.

Yep. It's a race I'm looking foreward to.

Besides bring in slot machines, and cutting support for public libraries, I'm afraid of thinking of what else Rendell has done.

It will also be interesting to see how Rick Santorum will do. The third ranking Republican in the Senate is trailing Democrat Bob Casey by double digits in current polls. Of the two incumbents, I think Santorum will have a tougher battle than Rendell.

Maybe Swann could campaign for the Senator?

Incidentally, given that the standing O was in/around PGH, what is Swann's popularity like in Philly?
