An excerpt...
"Run Barbara Run!
We Want Barbara Hafer to Run for Senator from Pennsylvania in 2006!
Who is Barbara Hafer?

Barbara Hafer, first and only woman commissioner of Allegheny County, state Auditor General, state Treasurer has proven herself to be someone Pennsylvanians trust to protect their rights and finances. But most importantly, the women of Pennsylvania have always trusted her to protect their lives and their right to choose.

Barbara Hafer took office as Pennsylvania's 74th Treasurer in January 1997, following eight years of public service as the state's Auditor General. She was reelected Treasurer in November 2000. The first Republican woman in history to serve as both Treasurer and Auditor General, she has earned a reputation as a critic of government waste and advocate of fiscal openness and accountability.

A Registered Nurse, Hafer began her professional life as a public health nurse and health care administrator. After seeing tax dollars wasted rather than channeled to the public health programs that desperately needed them, she began speaking out on public policy issues. A concern for victims' rights led her to found the Allegheny County Center for Victims of Violent Crime in 1973. She also served as executive director of the center, the state's first federally funded agency for crime victims. Through her work in public health and with crime victims, Hafer saw that the real power to implement change lies with those who control the public purse strings. That insight led to a political career and an abiding interest in public finance.

Barbara commands the respect of her constituents and peers alike as she carries on her work as a public servant and watchdog."
