GOP: Still time to find Senate challenger in Pa.
Republicans say they're confident of putting up a major challenger against US senator from Pa.
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Pennsylvania Republicans who just last fall were celebrating a slew of congressional and state election triumphs have yet to put up a major challenger against first-term Democrat Sen. Bob Casey.

It's a surprising turn for the GOP in a key swing state hard hit by job losses and in which President Barack Obama's popularity has slipped.

Pennsylvania GOP chairman Rob Gleason tells The Associated Press that there's still plenty of time to find a major challenger against Casey, who won his seat in 2006 by a whopping 18-point margin and is seeking a second term in 2012. He says he's bullish about next year.

Casey has told the AP in a separate interview that he expects a strong challenger and a tough race because Pennsylvania is such a competitive state.
