You don't have to be a PA resident to know that little Ricky Santorum's days are numbered. To those that think Bob Casey's victory over Rick is a foregone conclusion: think again. Chuck Pennacchio's support from the netroots grows every day, and with your help, we can get him the exposure he needs.
I mean, Casey's a fine guy. Middle-of-the-road Democrat and all, BUT -- his position on choice, for me, is totally unacceptable. While I understand the Big Tent arguments, I don't feel they apply when the decision is NOT limited to One Republican and One Democrat. Fortunately for PA, there's more than one option on the Democratic ticket. (Hell, if the Dems can round up candidates as sane as Pennacchio, I just may register with them again).
I've been following Chuck's campaign for nearly a year now, and delight in hearing that where he once addressed 10 folks in a suburban living room, he's filling auditoriums with eager voters. His support is experiencing a healthy growth spurt, and every mention you make of him will help.
Bloggers, if you're keeping a list of '06 election candidates somewhere, have a look at Chuck's positions and consider including him in your Candidate Roll.
Non-Bloggers, if you have any friends and family at all in PA, please turn them on to Chuck. Too many locals simply don't realize Casey isn't the only choice.
If you don't blog, and don't know anyone out here, get familiar with Chuck and the other Democrats / Independents hoping to secure seats in '06. Just chatting about them can help spread the word and mobilize people to get up to speed with who's who. The Democrats have a 12 point lead over Republican in current polling, so the ground is fertile!
