Santorum Planning Primary Challenge to Specter

The Pittsburgh Gazette publishes an interview today with former Senator Rick Santorum, who confirmed rumors that he was planning his comeback in '10.

Seeking to capitalize on long-simmering wingnut dissatisfaction with octogenarian Arlen Specter, Santorum is getting the old band back together to post a primary challenge to Specter, who is up for reelection in 2010.


Pat Toomey has agreed to lead Santorum's fundraising and Robert Traynham is back as communications director.

Santorum told the paper that he believes that his loss to Bobby Casey was the "unfortunate consequence of the public's dissatisfaction over Iraq." By 2010, the former Senator predicted, "Democrat-forced pull out from Iraq will have been devestating for US interests, emboldened the Islamofacists, and opened the eyes of the voters", all, the Senator expects, paving the way for his reemergence.

At first, this story brought moans of disgust and disbelief in these quarters -- after all, we thought we had buried this guy with a wooden stake through his heart. But it may well be the best move for the Democrats, to have the two leading Repubs in the Commonwealth clawing each other to bits in the primary, paving the way for Fast Eddie to make the moves on DC in an easy conversion for the Dems.

Run, Rick, Run.
