A piece in today's New York Times on the Santorum-Casey race aptly summarizes the Santorum strategy headed into the home stretch: keep the race as close as possible, then win with field on Election Day.

Good riddance to Romanelli. For all the Green talk of independence, he was bought and paid for by Santorum.
