Say No To Specter!
Typically speaking, party incumbents usually have a better chance at gettin’ themselves elected than party new comers. The question is, does the same point hold true if the sitting incumbent was elected as a member of the opposin’ party?
Senator Arlen Specter, formerly of the Republican Party, is sure as heck about to find out.
In Tuesday’s upcoming primary, the five-term Senator will face off against Representative Joe Sestak… the very same Joe Sestak that’s risin’ like Old Faithful in the recent polls. Things sure ain’t lookin’ good for ol’ Specter.
In nearly every survey taken this month, Sestak beats Specter hands down. Neither, however, appear to lead when matched against the presumptive Republican nominee Pat Toomey. At least not yet.
Pennsylvania Democrats should be aware, despite the fact that both of our boys are trailing, Sestak’s stats fair markedly better than Specter’s. As if anyone could have guessed that the Right wouldn’t take too kindly to Specter jumpin’ ship.
Sestak appears to be a rising star… and is the best chance Pennsylvania has at a REAL Democratic senator. In fact, if the margin of error (a whopping 4.5 +/- points from Rasmussen) is considered, the congressman could already be leadin’.
So on Tuesday, if all y’all PA Dems really want to win, I got some real simple advice.
