No Joy in Mudville: Casey 44-Rendell 56 Former Philly mayor Ed Rendell got past state auditor-general Bob Casey Jr. in the Pennsylvania gubernatorial primary. It's a victory for orthodox liberals in a state that still has a good chunk of Reagan Democrats that Casey represents. GOP nominee Attorney General Mike Fisher will take on Rendell in November. Claude alert!
Rendell and Casey - who is a son of the late Democratic Gov. Robert P. Casey Sr. (1987-95) - spent about $30 million on the campaign, much of it on a lengthy television advertising campaign.What else would make up the lion's share of campaign spending these days? Ring it up at 1.5 Claudes.
