Sen. Rick Santorum Defeated In Pa.
Nov. 7 -- The Senate's No. 3 Republican bit the dust Tuesday. Rick Santorum, one of President Bush's most steadfast supporters, was routed by Robert Casey, the anti-abortion, anti-gun control son of a popular Pennsylvania governor.
Santorum -- a two-term conservative -- had long defied those who said he was too conservative for the Democratic-leaning state. Santorum was also a close ally of the Bush administration and had trailed in the polls.
Santorum raised $25 million dollars and Casey $15 million dollars, making it the most expensive Senate race in Pennsylvania history.
