Arlen Specter left the Pennsylvania DEMOCRATIC Party?
Yes, according to Vice President Joe Biden. He was talking about how longtime Republican In Name Only Pennsylvania senator Arlen Specter announced he was switching to the Democratic party.
Listen to the 5:00-mark during the same speech where Biden earlier said he told is family not to fly anywhere. He says, “[Specter’s] party left him. The Pennsylvania Democratic Party of Arlen Specter, the party that was much more aligned with moderates, is no longer in existence in Pennsylvania, so he came where he was most comfortable.” [Emphasis mine]
I presume the vice president meant to say the Republican Party.
