  •  President Bush helped Specter in the primary (1+ / 0-)

    Specter nearly lost in the 2004 primary to a far-right candidate, and only survived because of strong support from the Republican establishment, including then-President Bush. So it would be quite a change if they decided to primary Specter.

    Specter is not up until 2012, and I expect this will be forgotten by then. Specter will toe the party line for a year before re-election, like McCain is doing now.
