Pennsylvania Politics -- Ridge Tours With Swanny

Former Governor Tom Ridge is touring the State with Lynn Swann. [read it here].

The press seems to think that this is all about giving Swann some "gravitas" but that is a decidedly secondary issue. Swann needs money, lots of it, and fast, and Ridge can put the arm on Republican donors. Right now polls don't matter, but fundraising does, and Ridge can provide money to the cash-strapped Swann campaign.
