Specter stumping with Congressional Dems

Sen. Arlen Specter was in Harrisburg this morning to tour Harrisburg Hospital, which is getting $190,000 in federal dollars this year for emergency room expansion. The interesting twist is that Specter appeared with U.S. Rep. Tim Holden (D-Pa) which marks a growing trend for the embattled senior senator that sees him touring Pennsylvania with Democratic congressmen.
Specter is in full campaign mode. The Washington Post reported that on Monday, Specter "openly encouraged" Democrats to switch back to the Republican party ahead of next year's primary, which will pit Specter against Peg Luksik and, presumably, Pat Toomey.
Specter told some Philadelphia retailers:
"I don't know if there are any Democrats in this room. If there are, I'm going to need you to become Republicans, Republicans at least for a day."
U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.), head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, wrote a letter asking Republicans to support Specter.
"As I survey the political landscape of the upcoming 2010 elections, it's clear we need more candidates that fit their states," Cornyn wrote. "While I doubt Arlen could win an election in my home state of Texas, I am certain that I could not get elected in Pennsylvania. I believe that Senator Specter is our best bet to keep this Senate seat in the GOP column. A vote for Arlen Specter is a vote for denying Harry Reid and the Democrats a filibuster-proof Senate."
