AP Story Mislabels Specter as a Democrat

From the AP: “Another potential Republican candidate is Pat Toomey, the former congressman who nearly unseated Democratic Sen. Arlen Specter in the 2004 primary….”

This is rich in irony. Despite being in the U.S. Senate as a Republican for 28 years and his frequent opposition with conservatives within the party, the AP almost gets it right, at least philosophically.
