Bill Kortz, the U.S. Steel Irvin Plant manager who rode the PACleanSweep tide into the state House three years ago, is looking at the U.S. Senate.
Kortz, Democratic representative in the 38th Legislative District, said Monday he intends to file the necessary paperwork with the Federal Election Commission for a 2010 run.

Bill Kortz (D-Allegheny) says he wants to run for U.S. Senate, which is not exactly the kind of news that makes Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chairman T.J. Rooney want to jump for joy.
It's nothing personal, but state party strategists are trying to corral Democrats and keep a low profile during the next 13 months as Arlen Specter, Pat Toomey and Peg Luksik make mincemeat out of each other in the GOP primary.
Rooney's response to free-agent declarations like Kortz? "Lots of luck."

1)Retired Steel Worker
2) USWA money behind him.
6) hardest working man in Rock and Roll…
Bill Can win this thing! I believe that barring some unseen act, he has to be the guy to beat. Bill, as he should, plays well in PA.
