The WSJ's Mike Kaminski tries to get a handle
on the senate and congressional races in Pennsylvania. Democrats are left trying to scare voters about what Republicans would do if they were back in power.
Ed Rendell, Pennsylvania's outgoing Democratic governor, calls it playing up the "fear factor." "Mike Fitzpatrick may be a reasonable guy, but Michele Bachmann [the Minnesota Republican congresswoman] isn't," Mr. Rendell tells me. "Toomey's a good candidate who doesn't appear to be a wacko. But Toomey gets hurt every time Christine O'Donnell opens her mouth."
If Pennsylvania voters can't tell the difference between Pat Toomey and Christine O'Donnell they deserve Joe Sestak.
