“For thirty years Senator Specter has consistently voted for increased government spending and a liberal agenda on social, labor, immigration and national security policies. In recent months, Senator Specter voted in favor of the unprecedented Wall Street and auto company bailouts and the massive “stimulus” spending bill. Senator Specter is on the wrong side of these critical issues and Pennsylvanians will pay the price.
“If Pennsylvania’s senior senator stood up for taxpayers and job creation – instead of routinely voting against taxpayer interests – I would feel less compelled to run. Unfortunately, he does not.”
I hope to speak to the former Allentown Congressman later today about this race in which, unlike his 2004 effort, he is the early favorite to win.
