Finding a Way to Lose

Up until now, the Oracle has accepted the premise that the Pennsylvania U.S. Senate race is unwinnable for Rick Santorum and will be a loss for the Republicans. However, while in Harrisburg this week, I spoke with a highly connected political source who told me that the recent tightening in the race is causing whispering among insiders from both parties that Bob Casey, Jr. is repeating his performance in the 2004 gubernatorial primary, in which he blew a 20+ point lead to Ed Rendell and ultimately lost by double digits.

It will be interesting to watch.
