Tom Ridge (R-Maryland)
As buzz builds about a possible Pennsylvania Senate run by former Gov. Tom Ridge (R-Pa.), the foreign agents filings for Ridge Global LLC, reveal that he doesn’t live in his old state. According to his filing from June 12, 2008, Ridge’s residence is on Woodlawn Ave in Chevy Chase, Md., the tiny Montgomery County suburb right outside of northwest DC.
This doesn’t seem like a big deal, but the residence of former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) — he got an in-state tax break for keeping a rarely used home in Pennsylvania while he lived in Virginia — became a flash point in his unsuccessful 2006 re-election bid. And former congressman and current GOP Senate candidate Pat Toomey, who has been thinking about a political comeback for years, has kept up his home in Allentown, Pa.
