The National Republican Senatorial Committee will offer refunds to Pennsylvania residents who took part in a fund-raising campaign that resulted in money being automatically withdrawn from their bank accounts, state officials said. Last year, the committee sent $25 checks to regular GOP contributors and others. By depositing the check, the recipient agreed to have $12.50 a month transferred electronically to a GOP task force.

President Obama, making an unusual foray into a Democratic primary election battle, told a paid crowd of supporters of Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) on Tuesday that the senator would fight "to help me move this country forward." The reception drew 750 people, some of whom paid $2,400 to attend. The president was scheduled to attend a more intimate gathering of Specter's big-money donors later today. Overall, the fundraiser was expected to bring in nearly $2.5 million, split between Specter's campaign and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

As a test of their new-found political momentum, abortion-rights advocates once touted the Pennsylvania governor's race as one of the best--and most unusual--political contests to watch nationwide. But as the May 15 primary approaches, their enthusiasm is fading. Polls have shown that the unyielding anti-abortion stance of incumbent Democratic Gov. Robert P. Casey was a handicap in his bid for a second term.

The second poll in a week shows Mitt Romney cutting deep into Rick Santorum's lead in his home state, Pennsylvania. Romney now trails Santorum by just six points in the state with 35% to Santorum's 41%, according to a Quinnipiac University survey released Tuesday. It's a devastating shift for Santorum who on March 14 in the same poll was besting Romney 36% to 22%. The poll comes on the heels of a Franklin & Marshall College survey that found Romney behind by just two points. This week, Santorum acknowledged that Pennsylvania is a “must win” for his presidential campaign.
