1. Eh...

Maybe...I've heard good things with McCord. I think both Sestak and McCord are from the SE part of the state so someone from the west could beat them in the primary. The job is Casey's if he truly wants it in my opinion. I won't be involved in the decision since I'm a registered R (who will not vote for Corbet or Toomey).

2. Interesting article.

I disagree with this line, though: "Say what you want about the content of Tom Corbett’s agenda, but dude arrived on the scene with a clear list of things he wanted to get done."

I feel that Corbett was quite UNCLEAR about what his agenda was when he ran for Governor. Most people perceived him as "a nice guy", kind of moderate-type. They couldn't have been more wrong. I'm also not so sure it was a list of things that HE wanted done--more like a list of what his ALEC puppet masters wanted done.

Sestak could be a good choice. He gave Pat Toomey a run for his right wing Super Pac money and made the race closer than Toomey expected. Wasn't the margin only something like 70,000 votes or so? That's really saying something considering that it was the 2010 "Republican Year."

I really like Senator Casey, but IMHO his team could have done a much better job in western PA this year.

3. Casey ran an anemic race for re-election

Casey is not a great campaigner. Also, we need his Dem vote in the Senate for the next 6 years.

4. We definitely need that Democratic vote in the Senate.

Whoever does run for Governor in 2014 needs to remember western Pennsylvania. They certainly won't be able to rely on the newspapers. Practically everything is a Scaife-owned right wing propaganda rag, not to mention the Post Gazette endorsed Corbett in 2010!
