Specter Wants Coleman To Win In Minnesota

Memo to Sen. Arlen Specter (RD-PA): You’re supposed to be a Democrat now.

In an interview with the New York Times, Specter stated in no uncertain terms that he wants Norm Coleman to win the disputed Minnesota Senate race: “There’s still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner.”

So what exactly are the Dems getting out of this whole deal?

Late Update: NRSC press secretary Amber Wilkerson gives us this comment: “First he voted against President Obama’s budget, then he said he wouldn’t be a loyal Democrat, now he wants Norm Coleman to win. We’ve never agreed so much with Arlen Specter. You just have to wonder whether Joe Sestak agrees with the positions of his fellow Pennsylvania Democrat?”

Late Late Update: It’s possible that Specter might have been telling a joke — a really bad joke that someone in his position shouldn’t even be attempting. I’ve put in a request for comment/clarification to his office, and have yet to hear back.
