Here in Pennsylvania we actually have a primary race going on for the Senate. Sure there's every reason to think that "presumptive frontrunner" (presumptive, because no one will do any polling) Bob Casey will probably win the primary, but there is in fact a primary and both the other candidates - Chuck Pennacchio and Alan Sandals - are running real campaigns and not just "put my name on the ballot" campaigns.

In any case, Sandals apparently got enough money together for an ad buy as I just watched an ad on CNN regarding an issue that Bob Casey can't really touch - women's health rights. Not sure what these guys have to do to get the press to acknowledge a bit more fully that they exist.
