Steve Forbes Sort of Thanks Specter for Card Check Vote « The Washington Independent
On a conference call with Steve Forbes, who supported Pat Toomey over Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) in the 2004 Republican primary, I asked whether Specter’s switched vote against the Employee Free Choice Act gave conservatives a reason to re-elect him over Toomey or another candidate.
“I think that the primary voters will make that choice,” said Forbes. “That will be an issue in the primary, if there is a primary. But I don’t think it was a coincidence that there was a primary, and then there was an epiphany.”
“Politics works,” I said.
“Public opinion works,” said Forbes.
