Specter's final pitch to Pa. voters: 'Experience and seniority'

It was the dog days of August when Rep. Joe Sestak announced his bid against incumbent Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, who had the backing of President Obama, Vice President Biden, Gov. Ed Rendell (D-Pa.), the state party organization and almost every key labor union. Many national party leaders believed the backing of such prominent figures would overcome doubts about the more than 28 years Specter spent as a Republican representing Pennsylvania in the Senate. But those party leaders at the so-called "grass tops" have not exactly nailed down support for Specter at the true grass-roots level.
