Ridge v. Specter

May 2, 2009

Roll Call is reporting (sub. req) that former PA Gov. and former DHS Sec. Tom Ridge may be thinking of challenging Arlen Specter for his Senate seat in 2010.

Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge is considering running for the Republican Senate nomination in his home state, according to a senior Republican aide with knowledge of the situation.

It would be interesting to see the Ridge v. Toomey PA GOP primary battle.

Ridge was in Cambridge last week attending various conferences in and around Harvard University– he seemed to be happy to be out of politics, running his private consulting firm Ridge Global and generally staying out of the limelight.  Still, a run in 2010 might be too hard to pass up.
