    I have been saying this for a long time now. Neither one of them has to worry about a primary challenge-a Pat Toomey here would be laughed off the ballot. No do they need to concern themselves with a progressive challenger, because the fact of the matter is people like the fact that the twins very often hold the key to the legislative castle. Neither of them are stupid (well, maybe Collins). For anybody outside the state to think bringing progressive pressure to bear on them is going to change the votes in the second district, well, sorry. There is a lot of magical thinking in these comments.

    I have a less harsh outlook than you concerning their view of their constituents, but the bottom line is that they will be voted back in with ease until they decide to retire.
