Montgomery County Commissioner Bruce L. Castor Jr. has a decision to make: Fish or cut bait. Will he challenge Gov. Corbett in the 2014 Republican primary, after criticizing him openly as a weak leader since the fall? Or would that be a political death trap? "He does a bad job of communicating what he's doing and a bad job of prioritizing," Castor said in an interview last week. "I think that's what the Republican base has been most disappointed in, that there hasn't been the overt showing of leadership they thought they were going to get. " The larger question is whether that disappointment is deep enough for conservative Republicans to mount a coup against their own governor.

THE PRIMARY election season for the 2016 presidential cycle may be three years away but we've already noticed one name missing from the pack of would-be contenders in several polls. Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum , who finished second to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in the 2012 Republican primaries, is not getting much pollster attention. That stood out to us because Romney finished second in the 2008 Republican primaries to U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who finished second in 2000 to former Texas Gov. George W. Bush . McCain and Romney went on to win the GOP nomination for president in their next attempts.

WASHINGTON - President-unelect Rick Santorum made his triumphant return to the Capitol this week and took up a brave new cause: opposing disabled people. Specifically, Santorum, joined by Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah), urged the Senate to reject the U.N. Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disabilities - a treaty negotiated during George W. Bush's administration and ratified by 126 nations, including China, Russia, Iran, Cuba, and Syria. The former presidential candidate pronounced "grave concerns" about the treaty, which forbids discrimination against people who have AIDS, are blind, use wheelchairs, and the like.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - His spot on the ballot now guaranteed, Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin began rebuilding support Wednesday among fellow Republicans who shunned him after a remark about "legitimate rape," while Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill honed an election strategy that will use Akin's own words to portray him as an extremist. Akin won a pair of high-profile Republican endorsements Wednesday from former presidential candidate Rick Santorum and tea party favorite Sen. Jim DeMint.

TAMPA - Rick Santorum stared at his smartphone, monitoring his wife, Karen, who was 10 yards away at the anchor desk in the CNN Grill, appearing as part of an on-air panel during Tuesday's session of the Republican National Convention. He was getting ready, as he might say, to take it to 'em. Two of his daughters and a couple of aides hunched over him at his table, blocking the noise of all the people who wanted to get at him. Afterward, Santorum was mobbed by well-wishers and fans, wanting to know about his coming speech in the convention hall; his disabled daughter, Bella; and his take on the man who Tuesday claimed the prize Santorum had wanted.

Smith, speaking after an event in Harrisburg, may have become the latest member of the Todd Akin political pariah club. Akin, a Missouri congressman running for the Senate, embarrassed the GOP last week by suggesting women's bodies prevent them from getting pregnant during a "legitimate rape.
