A year after switching from the Republican party to the Democratic party, Senator Arlen Specter (Pennsylvania) was defeated in yesterday's primary. "Upstart" Rep. Joe Sestak won, and with Rand Paul (R) winning a Senate primary in Kentucky, the Washington Post says, "Tuesday's results were the most powerful indicator to date of the voter anger and dissatisfaction that has shaped the political climate all year." A Democratic strategist admitted to the Daily News, "If the election were held today we'd lose both [the House and the Senate]. Thank goodness it's not being held today - but we still might lose the House." But Politico points out that Republicans "failed spectacularly" in trying to get late Rep. John Murtha's Pennsylvania seat (Democrat Mark Critz won).
