WASHINGTON-Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter announced today at the US Senate that he will defect from the GOP and run for re-election with the Democratic Party in 2010.

Specter declared that he, “did not want to have his 29 year record decided upon by the Pennsylvania Republican Primary selection.”

Calling the move away from the Republican Party a “painful decision,” both for himself, his friends and colleagues, Specter contends that his personal beliefs will not waver when it comes to individual issues, assuring that he will not be an automatic 60th vote.

Evoking John F. Kennedy, Specter agrees that sometimes the party asks too much.
He plans to act in the interest of the State.
