Specter Squeezes By
PHILADELPHIA - Moderate Republican Sen. Arlen Specter beat back a tough primary threat Tuesday, barely defeating a conservative congressman who lacked support from party leaders but gained momentum by casting the four-term incumbent as too liberal.
I'm not entirely sure what to make of this. Granted, Specter may represent the lesser of evils when compared with Toomey, however he may also prove a more difficult opponent for Hoeffel (the Democratic candidate) in the general election. Also, even though it was extremely close, this will be touted as a victory for Bush -as he endorsed Specter.
