Arlen Specter, a true turncoat, has lost his bid for re-election. O Happy Freakin’ Day! May we have 167 more days like this as we march toward flipping this congress and restoring some Common Sense, Integrity and Dignity to our nation’s leadership. We are definitely off to a great start with Rand Paul!
Upstart Senate candidates claimed two stunning victories in primary elections Tuesday night as Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak denied incumbent Democrat Arlen Specter renomination to a sixth term and Kentucky insurgent Rand Paul easily bested establishment favorite Trey Grayson for the Republican Party’s Senate nod.
The AP called Pennsylvania’s Senate primary for Sestak just before 10:15 p.m., as Sestak led Specter, 53 percent to 47 percent, with 65 percent of precincts reporting. The second-term congressman and former admiral will face off in the general election against former GOP Rep. Pat Toomey.
Addressing supporters shortly after the race was called in Sestak’s favor, Specter endorsed his victorious opponent: “I will support him in the election.”
Good Frakkin’ Riddance and take that grinning Fool with you!!
