Santorum's days in the Senate appear numbered
Republican Sen. Rick Santorum (news, bio, voting record)'s leading Democratic challenger raised thousands more than the incumbent in the three-month quarter that ended Friday.I don't like the fact that the Democratic party is increasingly going to "son of" politicians (here Bob Casey Jr.), however it is important to get Santorum out of the Senate and onto the infomercial circuit as quickly as possible.
Campaign spokesman John Brabender said Santorum lost about $1 million in contributions by canceling fundraisers after Hurricane Katrina.
Santorum, the No. 3 Senate Republican, raised more than $1.7 million for the period, while Pennsylvania Treasurer Bob Casey Jr. raised more than $2 million, their respective campaign spokesmen said Monday.
