This MSM and Ed Rendell are out in full force feeding us the talking point that whats going on is simply an “anti-incumbent” movement. BS. Whats going on is anti-dem and anti-rino. If its really just “anti-incumbent”, could someone show me the conservative incumbent that is in trouble?

The reason Specter is having trouble is because he was a rino that was chased from the GOP just like Crist, Scuzzyfava, and Gilcrest. He reached out to the libs for a lifeline but was thrown under the bus.

Good and bad. Sestak will be much harder to beat in the fall.

Sestak will be a harder opponent. Specter is a POS but he was easier to beat.

Maybe so. Maybe.

But obama will look weaker as he was in all of Specter’s ads.

This is a BLACK EYE FOR OBAMA no matter how they spin it.

Exactly.

Plus, people are assuming he will go quietly into the night. He may well run third party and hurt us yet.

In Texas, you don't register with a party so you can choose which primary, Democrat or Republican, you wish to vote.

Being from Texas, just wondering, do you have to actually register with a party?

Any info on whether there's many Republicans/Independents that have chosen to register as Democrats so as to vote in the Democrat primary?

I am not so sure. Many not very conservative GOP voters in PA have a long habit of voting for Specter. Sestak may have to work to get some of those voters.

Another plus if this holds is future GOP jumpers have something to mull over.

Exactly and they were never really going to support him because they don’t need him.

Specter is a dummy. He is incapable of being loyal.

No...he's not. At least not yet.

The vote is so far a dead heat...with Philly going for Spec-tar over 62%.

This race is a long way from over. So far, Spec-tar is holding his own.

Maybe. But I get the feeling that the reason Obama did not campaign for Specter was because he knew Specter was going down in flames. Obama didn’t want to be associated with a loser.

I agree, but take them when you get them, this is bad for bummer, who promised to help Specter if he voted for bummer stuff -— Which everybody knew, Benedict Arlene would do anyway.

Another former RINO bites the dust.

Obama didn’t want to be associated with a loser.

In every one of Specter's ads, obama and Specter were on stage together. It IS a black eye.....look at some of the ads.

I think he blows it for Sleestak.

Don’t know much about Sestak, but I do know that turncoats like Spector need to be ‘put down’ as soon as possible.
