PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― One week before next Tuesday's primary election, Republican-turned Democrat U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter appeared before Allegheny County Democrats in Pittsburgh.According to the video at the link, he thanked Republicans twice.
And, in a slip of the tongue, Specter thanked "Allegheny County Republicans" for supporting him.
Later, talking to reporters, Specter was asked about the gaffe.
"I think it's not unusual for anybody to misspeak from time to time," he quipped. "I'm not a television commentator. I'm not as smooth as you guys."
Hey! Here's an idea: If you're a Democrat, vote for a Democrat!
