You've been betrayed by the higher-ups in the Pennsylvania Republican Party. There are good conservative candidates in the U.S. Senate race who are running for the Republican nomination and who actually have a good chance of beating Bob Casey, Jr. But, the Governor and party chairman Rob Gleason twisted arms to endorse the most liberal guy of the bunch. A GUY WHO VOTED FOR BARACK OBAMA. A GUY WHO FUNDRAISED FOR CONGRESSMAN JOE SESTAK (who ran against Senator Pat Toomey) and donated to ActBlue (www.actblue.com). A GUY WHO SPENT 5 YEARS AS A DEMOCRAT BEFORE SWITCHING TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, JUST TO RUN FOR THE SENATE (as Dick Morris says). Even Tom Smith, who after 60+ years finally became a Republican 6 months ago is more conservative than this guy. 'Why the endorsement?' you ask…keep reading.
There is "a SuperPAC" in this race fighting Welch. We saw their video below on GrassrootsPA and PoliticsPA:

Welch has given multiple explanations for why he voted for Obama, the governor believes it was part of "operation chaos" but that was for Republican's to switch parties and vote for Hillary Clinton, not for longtime Democrats (like Welch was since 2005) to vote for Barack Obama…
In the end, it's not just that his principles cannot be nailed down, it's that his AMBITION to be in congress trumps his principles, which blow in the political winds. We cannot afford another ARLEN SPECTER!
More from the Superpac. Hilarious:
You might be saying to yourself, "There's no way the governor or Rob Gleason would sell out the Republican Party. These are my party leaders and my conservative protectors." Well, let me educate you on how these guys think. First, they're about as conservative as the donors they court, but what motivates them the most is KEEPING THEIR POWER. When it comes to the 2012 elections, the one thing the Governor cannot afford is a Democrat Attorney General or Auditor General, both of whom could spend the next two years investigating his administration ad nauseam, leading all the way up to his next election. If the US Senate candidate is self-financing, then the PAGOP can spend more of its campaign cash to guarantee the Republican AG and Auditor candidates comfortable wins. And there's no way the Governor could endorse a candidate like Dave Christian out of Bucks County, because that's the same county his Lieutenant Governor (Jim Cawley) hails from, and the other Philadelphia collar counties would be jealous. I know, it sounds crazy, but that's how these guys think. That's why the Governor repeatedly cites how "geographically balanced" his ticket is.
