WorkingForChange-Senator Rick Santorum's last showdown?:
"If recent polls showing that his Democratic opponent is leading by anywhere from 6 to 23 percent are correct, the political career of one of the country's most conservative Senators may be coming to an end. It's never say die time for Pennsylvania's two-term incumbent Republican Senator Rick Santorum, and he is counting on several hot-button 'values voters' issues -- immigration and same-sex marriage in particular -- to bring out his core constituency, conservative Christian evangelical voters.
Santorum's opponent, Pennsylvania State Treasurer Bob Casey Jr., is the son of the very popular former Pennsylvania Governor Bob Casey. One of the unusual aspects of this race -- for a seat Democrats need to win if they are to have any chance of winning back control of the Senate -- is that both Santorum and Casey have staked out anti-abortion positions, therefore basically taking that issue off the table.
With the abortion issue neutralized, Santorum, who was elected to the House in 1990 and the Senate in 1994, is turning to the Pennsylvania Pastors Network for support. This new group, which models itself after the Ohio Restoration Project, is squarely in Santorum's camp. "
