A challenger for Bob Casey?


Via Politico:
Pennsylvania Republicans may finally be closing in on a viable recruit to take on Democratic Sen. Bob Casey: wealthy businessman Steve Welch.

Welch met with National Republican Senatorial Committee officials this week in Washington, POLITICO has learned. People familiar with his thinking say Welch is considering a run more seriously than when GOPers first tried to recruit him earlier in the year.
Welch made a run for Congress last year but aborted his efforts when Jim Gerlach got back into the race. You can still see Welch's campaign website here.

Welch has the one thing that the GOP loves; money. He is rich and can self-fund his campaign. It allows him to avoid all that pesky fundraising and dealing with actual constituents...
