Specter: 'Victory Is in the Air' in Pa. Primary

Saturday, 15 May 2010 01:32 PM


Five-term Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter says he senses "victory is in the air" in Tuesday's primary election, even though he's in a close race for the Democratic nomination.

Specter spoke to union members Saturday at a riverfront rally at the Packer Avenue Marine Terminal in Philadelphia. His challenger, U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, was scheduled to appear at Pittsburgh rally.

Specter denied Sestak's charge that he switched from the Republican to the Democratic party to save his job. In fact, Specter says he put his job at risk by switching parties last year.

He also rebutted criticism about his voting record and returned fire by accusing Sestak of having a poor attendance record. Specter said: "When he talks about my votes, at least I vote."
