Toomey Catching Up:

Despite strong endorsements from President Bush and fellow Republican Sen. Rick Santorum, liberal Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter has been losing ground in his race against Rep. Pat Toomey (R.-Pa.). The two face off in an April 27 GOP Senate primary.

Toomey has closed to within single digits of Specter, after trailing by 23 points in January, according to a new poll by KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh and WNEP-TV in Scranton. The statewide poll of 399 likely Republican voters puts the race at Specter, 47%; Toomey, 38%, with 15% undecided. Toomey, whose name was recognized by only half of those surveyed, definitely has the momentum and plenty of room to add new supporters once they learn about his campaign. The candidates will meet in an April 3 televised debate in Altoona.
