  •  Dems may pressure her to drop out (none)
    I would guess that some of the top Democrats in Bucks County may try to convince her to drop out and replace her with a stronger candidate. All the state senators from Bucks County are Republicans and Thomas Corrigan, Sr. and Anthony Melio appear to be the only Democratic state representatives so it doesn't seem like we have many potential candidates because the county is republican in state politics, even though it voted for Rendell.

    However, Peter Kostmayer, who was the Democratic congressman before he lost to Greenwood in 1992 could run again and he did run for legislature in 2002, but lost.

    I doubt that Schrader would get off the ballot considering this oppurtunity but she may feel some pressure if Democrats don't think she can win.
