Gerlach vs. Toomey?


I mentioned Rep. Jim Gerlach (R, Pa.) yesterday morning as a possible Senate candidate in Pennsylvania. He has been considering a run for governor, but Pa. Republican insiders consider him an underdog in a primary against Attorney General Tom Corbett (R).

Gerlach tells CQ that he is not closing the door on running against former Rep. Pat Toomey (R) for the Senate nomination. Gerlach (lifetime ACU rating: 60) has narrowly held onto his suburban Philadelphia Congressional District since he first won it in 2002.
