DEM CASEY OUSTS ‘ SANCTIMONIOUS’ SANTORUM

State overwhelmingly rejects GOP's No. 3 Senate leader.

Sen. Rick Santorum, the No. 3 Senate leader who rode into office 12 years ago on an anti-incumbent swell, succumbed yesterday to a similar wave of voter discontent, losing his seat in a landslide to Democrat Bob Casey Jr.




Casey, 46, mined anger over the Iraq war, the economy, and Washington corruption to become the first Pennsylvania Democrat in more than 40 years to win a full Senate term. The state treasurer and son of a popular former governor, Casey cast himself as the anti-Santorum, a soft-voiced moderate who would set aside ideology for pragmatism.
