Smith Wins GOP Senate Nod in Pennsylvania

Coal-mining millionaire Tom Smith (R), a newcomer to politics who spent $4 million of his own money on TV advertising, easily won the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

His candidacy "was scorned by the Republican establishment," including Gov. Tom Corbett (R).

Smith will face Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) in the fall election.
