"Pittsburgh and Philadelphia with Alabama in between."

Is how James Carville once described Pennsylvania. A great line. I was reminded of it reading a good Dale Russakoff piece on the Pennsylvania Democratic gubernatorial primary that appeared in yesterday's Washington Post.

The race pits former Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell against state Auditor General Bob Casey, who is so much like his father (former Governor Robert Casey), it's eerie. The race is close, although Casey has an organizational edge. The primary will be held on the 21st of May.
