    Specter became a Republican because the Dem Philly machine wouldn't let him in, so he ran as a Republican to be free of that ceiling.  Same thing with Rush Holt, Sr.  He ran as a Republican for Governor after his Senate career as a Democrat because the WV Dem machine didn't like him or something.

    Age 23. Voting in NJ-03. Lived most of life in NJ-01. Had Rush Holt represent me during my undergrad years and am now represented by Frank Pallone in my grad school.
