Despite expectations that Pat Toomey would have a clear shot as the GOP nominee to take on Arlen Specter in the fall of 2010, there's now plenty of speculation that Tom Ridge, the former Pennsylvania governor and Homeland Security secretary, might enter the Senate race.
Ridge, you'll remember, was vetoed along with Joe Lieberman as John McCain's running mate last year due to their pro-choice views on abortion. Ridge, though, is otherwise not considered the kind of party apostate Specter was as a Republican.
If it happens, that would be a fascinating battle. Toomey doesn't strike me as the type to step aside graciously just because there's a "real" Republican in the race.
