AP Says Santorum Goes Down in Defeat in Pennsylvania

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Pennsylvania state Treasurer Bob Casey has defeated Republican Senator Rick Santorum.

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 (m) million dollars and Casey 15 (m) million dollars, making it the most expensive Senate race in Pennsylvania history.
