Steele: Specter Left GOP Because Of His Left-Wing Voting Record, Would Have Lost Primary

RNC Chairman Michael Steele has released this statement on Arlen Specter’s party switch:

“Some in the Republican Party are happy about this. I am not.

Let’s be honest-Senator Specter didn’t leave the GOP based on principles of any kind. He left to further his personal political interests because he knew that he was going to lose a Republican primary due to his left-wing voting record.

Republicans look forward to beating Sen. Specter in 2010, assuming the Democrats don’t do it first.”
