DeMint Launches Anti-Specter Website
The Senate Conservatives Fund, chaired by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) (and located squarely inside the Freedom Tent) has launched SpecterVsToomey.com, where people can vote in a poll, write mash notes about the candidates, and, oh yeah, supply their email addresses. The goodwill from Sen. Arlen Specter’s (D-Pa.) Employee Free Choice Act flip-flop seems to be pretty much gone:
Specter voted in favor of the union organizing “card-check” bill and voted against a bill to protect secret ballot union elections.
It’s no longer news that Republicans will endorse Specter’s opponent, but one thing to keep an eye on is the effort — still totally in the rumor stage — that Republicans are trying to draft a stronger general election candidate, like Tom Ridge. The conservative base, represented by people like DeMint, is not going to let Toomey get shoved aside.
