PHILADELPHIA -- Republican Senator Rick Santorum and his leading Democratic challenger, Pennsylvania Treasurer Bob Casey Junior, are scheduled to appear Friday morning for the first time at the same campaign event.
Although the race is more than a year off, it is already billed as one of the most competitive and expensive Senate races in 2006.
The two will be speaking at the annual meeting of the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce. They won't be appearing side-by-side. They'll give separate speeches to the group.
A Quinnipiac University poll last week had Santorum, the two-term incumbent and Number Three Senate Republican, running 18 points behind Casey. Casey is the son of the late Pennsylvania Gov. Robert Casey.
Santorum's spokesman said Santorun will focus today on his accomplishments in the Philadelphia area, and look at what's ahead for Pennsylvania in the next five to 10 years.
Casey's campaign manager said Casey will give an economic policy address.
