Matt Lewis has a story in the Politico about possible Senate bids by Club for Growth President Pat Toomey and Family Research Council head Tony Perkins in 2010. Neither man would be growing the Republicans’ numbers in the Senate, however. Under this scenario, Perkins would primary Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana while Toomey would reprise his 2004 primary battle with Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. Both Toomey and Perkins are former House members who have lost Senate races before.
UPDATE: Louisiana state House member in Perkins’s case. Only Toomey was a U.S. congressman. Mea culpa.
