Former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge Would Have to Move Official Residence Back to Pennsylvania

So, does anyone think this is a disqualifier for the former Pennsylvnia Governor, Tom Ridge to take on U.S. Senator Arlen Specter?

Political Wire has learned that former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge (R) listed his residence as Chevy Chase, MD on a recent foreign agents registration filing with the U. S. Department of Justice. He reported he was representing the Government of Albania.

No…..well, maybe…….

Specter’s age, switch of political parties, lack of Senate seniority and votes on spending will do more to harm his candidacy.

But, Pat Toomey, on the other hand, could beat Ridge over the head with it in a contentious GOP primary.

Tom Ridge has said he will decide on whether to run in two weeks.

Stay tuned…….

  1. If there’s any chance that Specter can be sent packing out of Washington, the GOP should clear the decks for Ridge, and start piling on Specter. It’s time to stop whining and start playing smart politics.
