Casey Surrogate vs. Casey Surrogate

A funny thing happened on my way to speaking before the Dauphin County Democrats this past Sunday in Harrisburg. I had just arrived for my 3:30 p.m. speaking engagement when a campaign volunteer told me that my stage time would be delayed for a few minutes. Lieutenant Governor Catherine Baker Knoll had unexpectedly shown up and was addressing the 75 or so Democrats who were enduring the summer swelter along the Susquehanna River.

After Ms. Knoll’s discussion of her good works on behalf of Pennsylvanians and Governor Ed Rendell, I approached her to introduce myself and to present her with my campaign card. “Nice to meet you, Lieutenant Governor, my name is Chuck Pennacchio and I’m running for Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate seat in 2006.” Her only words for me were, “Why are you running against Bobby Casey?”

Before I could respond to Ms. Knoll, County Chair Jim Young started to introduce me to the assembled crowdBut Lt. Gov. Knoll interrupted Mr. Young and offered to speak on behalf of Robert Casey Jr.’s Senate campaign.

Okay, I thought to myself, this could be interesting. I was not to be disappointed.
