In an echo of their campaign against Kathy Dahlkemper, anti-abortion activists are now targeting Bob Casey (one of only three anti-abortion Dems in the Senate) in 2012 for his support of health care reform. From Roll Call:
“To really call himself pro-life is not quite right,” said Helen Gohsler, president of the Scranton chapter of Pennsylvanians for Human Life, based in Casey’s hometown.
She laughed incredulously when asked whether the local anti-abortion community could support Casey in 2012. “He betrayed us,” she said.
Casey's spokesman calls shenanigans:
“Those groups were for Rick Santorum. He was their guy. They didn’t support Sen. Casey then, and they’re not going to support him now,” Casey spokesman Larry Smar said. “There’s a big difference between real Pennsylvanians and these interest groups.”
