The Pennsylvania Senate race has not been on anyone’s radar yet. Most handicappers don’t view this as a competitive seat in the fall.  However, Rasmussen just published a poll showing Senator Casey with an unimpressive 48-41% lead over Tom Smith.  Remember that Smith has the ability to self-fund and plans to run an aggressive campaign.  At the very least, he will force Democrats to use scarce resources in thei state, during a year when they are already stretched thin with vulnerable incumbents all over the country.
