Onorato, is mayor of Pittsburgh and has a lot to prove before he'll be competitive. Corbett is well known, and I am sure the Onorato will close the gap over the next month.

I think Bob Casey should do a lot of campaigning for both Onorato and Sestak. Casey is well liked by a lot of people, and perhaps it is because he gets some Republican support due to his pro-life stand, but there is more about Casey to like than just that.

Biden would probably be helpful in this state for the both of them. Clinton too. Rendell is probably hurting him more than Obama. However, we are like the country in a way. Usually flip parties for the governor after 8 years

Biden will help in PA and in DE, but moreso in PA since Castle, running for Biden's old seat is a fairly moderate Republican. I still think he'll help the Democratic nominee.

Toomey and Sestak are like fire and water from each other. Keeping Toomey out of the senate is my number 2 goal next to keeping Sharron Angle out of the senate.

I thought getting Hugo Chavez elected to POTUS was your number one goal, LOL.

Actually Dan Onorato is the Chief Executive of Allegheny County while the mayor of Pittsburgh is Luke Ravenstahl. All I can say is that if Toomey wins the Senate race, than that definitely means Corbett won. If Sestak wins the Senate race, then Onorato might also do better than this polls shows.
