The Corner

From Snarlin’ HQ

Here at the Sheraton in downtown Philadelphia, Sen. Arlen Specter (D., Pa.) just made a quick appearance in the ballroom, roaming around the little-hot-dogs platter, but didn’t answer many questions. He looks exhausted. He tells NRO that turnout is still the key to everything. His buddy, Gov. Ed Rendell, chimes in that with the weather having cleared up around Pennsylvania after 5 p.m., things could — could — be better than expected after numerous midday reports of low turnout. Specter staffers are hopeful, but hardly confident…

UPDATE 9:30 p.m.: With 31 percent of precincts reporting, it is nearly tied — Specter 50.4, Sestak 49.6.

UPDATE 9:50 p.m.: With 37 percent of precincts reporting, Sestak now leads, 50.3 to 49.7.

Via ABC News, NRO asks Specter about Gov. Ed Rendell’s help on the trail, here.
