Catherine Baker Knoll was renominated for her position as Lieutenant Governor, winning by a considerable margin. Although Knoll had broad support from the party establishment, she drew criticism from both liberal and conservative factions. Knoll was also viewed as a potential liability for the Rendell campaign both because of her age and owing to a series of gaffes. Knoll fights talk of Rendell dumping her in '06 Valerie McDonald-Roberts garnered the endorsements of the state's major newspapers and various left-leaning groups, but was unable to match Knoll in fundraising. William Hall vocally endorsed a socially conservative platform and performed well in heavily rural counties.
