Senators Nervous About Specter

Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) said that Republican Senators are “nervous” that Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) will flip-flop on the Card Check Forced-Unionism bill.

“We’re very nervous about some of the public statements he’s made,” Ensign told a group of conservative bloggers Wednesday, as reported by the American Spectator.

Specter had announced that he wouldn’t back EFCA (or “card check”) before having switched parties last month to pursue reelection as a Democrat. Since then, union officials have  lobbied Specter to get the critical votes to overcome a filibuster of the bill.

“We hope he honors not just the letter of his pledge, but the intent of the pledge,” Ensign told the bloggers.
