Alan Sandals considering running against SantorumAs reported by the Daily News, a Philadelphia-area attorney is thinking about joining the fray to challenge Sen. Santorum in 2006. He would join Bob Casey and Chuck Pennacchio. His name is Alan Sandals. He is a relatively well-known trial attorney who specializes in pension and medical care cases. Given how hot the issue of healthcare is right now, his expertise might come in handy.
He actually announced his formation of an exploring committee almost a month ago. You can find his statement here. It mainly focuses on Social Security and is pretty wonkish.
Actually, I don't really know anything about him at all. With one heavy-hitter like Casey and a progressive challenger like Pennacchio, I can't imagine why someone else would want to enter the race.
