Mr. And Mr. Smith Running in Pennsylvania

Businessman Tom Smith, the GOP nominee to challenge Democratic Sen. Bob Casey, has company -- Rayburn Smith, a retired postal worker running as a Libertarian. The Allentown Morning Call on Rayburn Smith:

He collected enough signatures to appear on the November Pennsylvania ballot, although they are being challenged by the state Republican Party.

...

It's a worst-case scenario for Tom Smith, an underdog candidate with low name recognition, to have a third party challenger to peel away votes. It's worse yet when the candidate shares the same surname.

...

The "other" Smith, 65, doesn't have a campaign website -- he said he doesn't have Internet at home -- doesn't intend to fundraise and doesn't have much negative to say about Casey or Tom Smith. Their biggest affront, he said in an interview Monday, is they represent a "plutocracy."
