Can Tom Ridge Win a Republican Primary in PA?

by: Matt Lewis

It seems like every political pundit inside and outside of Pennsylvania is heralding former PA Governor Tom Ridge as the Republican Party’s savior in the PA Senate Race. But no one is really looking at his record and asking if Ridge can possibly win a primary against Pat Toomey.
There are no credible primary polls yet, but there is plenty of reason to think that the primary will not be a walk in the park for Ridge.First, it is worth noting that Toomey nearly beat Specter last time around -- and despite the help Ridge would receive from Republican insiders -- it is unlikely he could match the help Specter received last time (after all, President Bush supported him). Additionally, it is axiomatic that in GOP primaries, conservatives are the ones who will turn out to vote. Clearly, Ridge would have his hands full in a primary.

Quinnipiac poll: Toomey 41% to Specter 27%

From The Hill newspaper:
Former Congressman Pat Toomey (R) would crush Sen. Arlen Specter (R) in the 2010 GOP primary, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday.Toomey, who is currently the president of the conservative Club for Growth, beat the senator 41 percent to 27 percent among registered Republicans in the poll. Toomey, who came within two points of defeating Specter in the 2004 GOP primary, has indicated he is likely to challenge Specter again in 2010.Specter's problems lie in the state's conservative Republican base. Statewide, Specter performs well, with 52 percent job approval. But the same percentage of Republicans disapprove of his performance, his worst performance among the GOP since Quinnipiac began polling in Pennsylvania in 2002. Under Pennsylvania election laws, only registered Republicans may vote in the state's GOP primary.

Catholic bishops will fight Obama on abortion

BALTIMORE - The nation's Roman Catholic bishops vowed Tuesday to forcefully confront the Obama administration over its support for abortion rights, saying the church and religious freedom could be under attack in the new presidential administration.

In an impassioned discussion on Catholics in public life, several bishops said they would accept no compromise on abortion policy. Many condemned Catholics who had argued it was morally acceptable to back President-elect Obama because he pledged to reduce abortion rates.

And several prelates promised to call out Catholic policy makers on their failures to follow church teaching. Bishop Joseph Martino of Scranton, Pa., singled out Vice President-elect Biden, a Catholic, Scranton native who supports abortion rights.

Barack Obama Blame Farmers for Obesity

Just days before farmers will be going to vote, Democratic candidate Barack Obama made a major slip when he criticized American agriculture. In an interview with Time Magazine he said, “I was just reading an article in the New York Times by Michael Pollan about food and the fact that our entire agricultural system is built on cheap oil. As a consequence, our agriculture sector actually is contributing more greenhouse gases than our transportation sector. And in the meantime, it’s creating monocultures that are vulnerable to national security threats, are now vulnerable to sky-high food prices or crashes in food prices, huge swings in commodity prices, and are partly responsible for the explosion in our health care costs because they’re contributing to type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease, obesity, all the things that are driving our huge explosion in health care costs. That’s just one sector of the economy. You think about the same thing is true on transportation. The same thing is true on how we construct our buildings. The same is true across the board.”
US farm leaders were quick to respond. Ron Litterer, a farmer who is chairman of the National Corn Growers Association, said Obama’s comments in the Time interview were “in conflict with what he’s been saying about agriculture, no question about it.” Click here
