NRSC wastes little time attacking Casey ahead of 2012

The Morning Call

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey’s vote to reinstate Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader — as did every single Democratic senator, as far as we can tell — handed the National Republican Sentorial Committee an easy attack.

Casey, who faces re-election in two years simulataneously with President Barack Obama, is not considered one of the most vulnerable Democrats in 2012, but he’s still likely to face a tough challenge.

In a statement released Tuesday morning, the campaign arm for Senate Republicans, accused Casey of missing the message of the 2010 election.

“Clearly, Senator Casey wasn’t listening two weeks ago, when Pennsylvanians rejected business as usual in Washington and chose Pat Toomey as their next Senator,” said NRSC spokeswoman Amber Marchand.  “By ignoring his constituents and supporting a big-spending, tax-hiking, pro-ObamaCare liberal like Harry Reid, Bob Casey has once again demonstrated that Pennsylvanians cannot trust him to represent their best interests and values in Washington, and that’s why voters will no doubt elect a fiscally responsible leader as their next U.S. Senator in 2012.”
