MoveOn Targets Specter

Senator Arlen Specter’s short days as a Democrat have filled with a lot of turmoil and now “ , is resisting efforts to clear the Democratic primary field for Republican-turned-Democratic.”

The group expressed concern over Specter’s vote against President Obama’s $3.4 billion budget just one day after defecting to the Democratic Party. MoveOn also cited comments Specter made in an appearance on “Meet the Press” last weekend suggesting he would oppose a public health insurance option that some Democrats would like to see included in any health care reform proposal.

Progressives are leaning towards “Anyone but Arlen” at this stage of the game.
