A Bureaucrat's Aside Re: Sen. Jane Orie

If Sen. Jane Orie (R-eally Large Bangs) does, in fact, decide to run for U.S. Senate, the real loser is going to be Luke Ravenstahl. Sen. Orie has made a name for herself being (and let's be nice here) a gadfly when it comes to City of Pittsburgh Government. Running for U.S. Senate, I would expect more such criticisms of Democratically controlled urban areas in the coming months in order to keep her name in the news.

Of course, this may not necessarily endear her to the residents of the Commonwealth's Cities, but I somehow doubt that's where she expected her power base to be anyway.
