Daniel…… Pennsylvania Governor: Corbett now comfortably ahead……

Hello Dog!

A new Statewide Survey in the Keystone State shows State Attorney General Tom Corbett (R-PA) extending his lead over his 3 Democratic Rivals. Corbett now leads between 13 and 21 Points.

Although “The Dog” keeps punishing me by saying we’ve still 8 months out until Election Day but there is one big Caveat: He doesn’t know the States Trends. The Keystone States Governor Mansion has changed EVERY 8 Years.

Former Governor Tom Ridge (R-PA) won the Governor Race in 1994 and got reelected in 1998 before joining the Bush Administration to become the new Chief of the newly created Homeland Security Department. Ridge though now maybe kicking himself for not launching a Senate Campaign against embattled Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA).

I also think the Democratic Field for Governor is too weak to make any serious inroads against Corbett (R-PA). Pennsylvania along with Ohio is the single most important Governor Race to get back from Democrats as Republicans control the State Senate and therefore could draw themselves favorable Congressional District Lines for the 2012 Elections.

Going briefly back to Ridge it was probably the biggest loss this Cycle for NRSC John Cornyn (R-TX) to not have him running for Senate. Ridge would have likely locked this thing up by now. I’m assuming Cornyn will stay as NRSC Chief so there is a possibility that he may can convince Ridge to run against Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) in 2012.

You are probably right in the case of the Governor’s race…..While Spector has made a come back in the Senate race…..even this far out things don’t look good in the Governor’s race for democrats…..
