Has Peg Luksik ever actually won an election?

Just curious, but I'm pretty sure the answer's no. She's like the Harold Stassen of PA local politics. She's, uh, challenging Pat Toomey in the Senate primary on May 18.

I thought of that question after reading the last quote in that interview:
Toomey is considered the front-runner in the race for the Republican nomination, with the May 18 winner to face either Democrat Rep. Joe Sestak or Sen. Arlen Specter in the fall.

An April Quinnipiac University poll incorrectly said that Toomey was running unopposed.

Luksik said that many Republicans were "very insulted" by the oversight.

"It's like the moguls have decided for them," she said.

Despite the omission, Luksik said she would continue to run her campaign in her own style.

"It's quiet in that it's a people's campaign," she said. "I've always campaigned that way. No one sees me coming until Election Day."

We'll see. I wonder if she would have more of a chance if she wasn't also managing Bill Russell's campaign. Or what that would do for Russell, for that matter.
