The Patriot News ran a story covering the 2010 Gubernatorial Elections. In the story, Democrat State Committee Chairman Rooney said that he is more afraid of running against Jim Gerlach than Tom Corbett. Rooney points to Gerlach’s voting history, tough elections, and experience making him more formidable.
It is disingenuous to think that Rooney would offer legitimate advice to the Republican Party as to who they can best challenge the Democratic Party with. None the less, it is an interesting choice of words on the part of the Democratic Chairman. The story can be found here.
