Bob Casey needs to run TV ads NOW
I'm a PA resident and I can't believe that Santorum's warm and fuzzy TV ads have helped him narrow the gap in this race. Casey needs to start reminding PA residents that Santorum is a nutjob and very dangerous. The warm and fuzzy Ricky surrounded by happy children in the TV ads is not real. He cannot be allowed to win another term in the Senate.

1. Contact his people
They should hear from you, as you are in Pennsylvania. They may listen to you.

2. Does his campaign have money?
I can't believe they're not running ads.

3. Casey will never have the money that Ricky boy does;
Edited on Wed Aug-16-06 08:00 PM by jedr
He (Casey)is doing allot of personal campaigning which is slow but effective. Those who tend to be swayed by TV adds tend to have short memories and when the time comes it will not be hard to paint Rick as the whack-job he is. My fear is when Rove steps into this campagain, the Repubs do want to lose this one and it will be no holes barred! I don't know if Casey will be able to stand the stench when it breaks loose.

4. I am amazed that Santorum has cut the poll lead from 16 to 5 or 6 while
Casey has been totally absent. (Western PA) Santorum's ads are slick, the first batch about terrorism and immigration and lately they always involve seniors and children. All I have heard from Casey was one radio ad criticising Santorum about his web page (one story in English, another in Spanish re: immigration). The chart in the paper shows Santorum rapidly closing the damn gap between them.

5. I only hear his ads on the right wing radio station.
Never see any TV ads. Probably because he knows he has no shot in Philly.

6. Volunteer,make a contribution. Write a letter to the editor calling out
the hypocrisy of these campaign commercials. I am doing some volunteering for Casey, but as it has been pointed out, he doesn't have the kind of money Santorun does to run this commercials so early. Santorum always does the same things when he runs, he makes sure he looks like a nice,safe middle of the road conservative when in fact, he is nothing of the sort.

7. Thanks. I went to the website
tonight and made a contribution and signed up to volunteer. I have seen Santorum's ad on TV every day for the last two weeks at the gym and during the nightly news. He is hitting the airwaves bigtime in Philly.
