Specter to Hatch: ‘You Better Watch Out’

Quite the revealing private conversation, overheard on the Capitol Hill tram by a Fox News producer. I paraphrase:

SEN. ARLEN SPECTER (D., PA.): “You better watch out Orrin, [former Club for Growth president and Specter challenger Pat] Toomey’s coming to get you next.”

SEN. ORRIN HATCH (R., UTAH): “What’s that?”

SEN. ARLEN SPECTER (D., PA.): “The Club for Growth, they’re coming for you just like they came for me.”

SEN. ORRIN HATCH (R., UTAH): “Man, they really savaged Bob [Bennett (R., Utah)]. They’re coming for Republicans.”
