Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) to Switch to Democratic Party

This is breaking news that just came in – Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) is expected to announce that he will run in the Democratic primary in 2010.  Specter had expected to face a tough primary if he stayed in the Republican Party.

This could be a good move for him, but if the Republicans get a strong candidate out, he’ll probably lose that seat.  I’ll post again as soon as Specter releases a statement or has a press conference.  Right now, I don’t have many details, but it appears as if he will stay in the Republican caucus until 2010.

Done Reporting,

Ranting Republican
