Senator Teresa–Ack.

Rick’s 1995 Specter piece is up and has this frightening tidbit:

Specter has been feuding with fellow Republicans in Pennsylvania for years. He feared that the moderately conservative Richard Thornburgh would give him a primary battle in 1986. In 1994, he supported solidly conservative Rick Santorum’s successful challenge to Senator Harris Wofford, but only after trying to persuade Senator John Heinz’s widow, Teresa, to seek the nomination. (Teresa Heinz is now married to Democratic Senator John Kerry.)
