Default Re: The Rooneys- Republican or Democrat?

Ten days before the March 20 special state Senate election in the North Hills and Allegheny Valley, Democrat Jim Rooney was excited. The new poll numbers had Rooney trailing by just nine points. More important, his Republican opponent, Jane Orie, was not yet above the critical 50 percent mark. Three weeks earlier, when the race had begun to replace former state Sen. Melissa Hart, polls showed Rooney, the Steelers scion, down by more than 30 points against Orie, a state legislator from the wealthiest and most Republican part of the 40th Senatorial District.
