from the Republicans to the Democrats sent us on an "exhaustive search" of WW's archives to find the last time we'd written about Specter.
Turns out it was only last month when Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele was in Portland

Steele's counter back then: “Trust me. He's paying attention” and then saying he and Sen. Specter have had a good meeting and that he looks forward to working with him in the Senate.
