Santorum's Specter Problem

January 1, 2012
Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum's newfound popularity brings with it not only rising poll numbers but increasing scrutiny of his decades-long tenure in the public eye. And few blemishes jeopardize his standing with conservative voters more than the former Pennsylvania senator's 2004 endorsement of Arlen Specter. 
At the time, Specter was a U.S. senator from Pennsylvania trying to fend off a fierce primary challenge from conservative GOP Rep. Pat Toomey. Coupled with the support of President George W. Bush, Specter rallied to win with just 50.8 percent of the vote, fewer than 20,000 votes more than Toomey.
