Skip to comments.Biden back in native Pa. region for Specter rally (only 250 show up!)

Vice President Joe Biden urged Pennsylvania Democrats on Friday to return Arlen Specter to the Senate, calling the Republican-turned-Democrat a valuable White House ally on priorities like health care and the economic stimulus.
Returning to his native northeastern Pennsylvania for the first time since taking office, Biden lauded Specter's experience and "unflinching support for the workers of Pennsylvania."
Specter faces a primary challenge from U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, a retired Navy admiral, who has denounced an ad aired by Specter this week that claimed he was relieved of duty "for creating a poor command climate."
Sestak asked Biden to disavow the ad, comparing it to attacks by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth against Sen. John Kerry in his challenge to President George W. Bush in 2004.
Biden did not address the controversy in his remarks at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport. Instead, he told about 250 supporters gathered inside a hangar that Specter - whom he called "my single best friend in the United States Congress" - has been a strong advocate for Pennsylvania.
Who are these very strange 200-250 people who would show up to see Biden and Specter?
Bye Bye Arlen!
The ones they paid?
Specter’s campaign started out with a “look at me. I brought you all these wonderful things” theme. Now he’s getting ugly with his opponent. In fact, one of the local station did an analysis of that commercial — much of what is claimed in that ad is not true.
Ch 16 news also reported 200. I wanted to go so I could shout out, Hey Joe is this a big effin deal.Had to go to work tho.
Probably supporters of amnesty for illegals.
Probably some union people and ACORN representatives.
Proponents of necrobestiality, no doubt.
“Stand up, Chuck!”
Jo would of drawn more with a gig at the local Comedy Club.
Please, Baraq Sheik Obomba, please come to Pennsylvania to campaign for Arlene “Magic Bullet” Spectre!
I’m juvenile. I would’ve *loved* to have seen that on TV ;-)
Some rally. And they were probably union thugs.
LOL! What an ass he is....
That's RACIST! /sarc
Airport ground crew, Secret Service and reporters.
Support the workers of Pa....except for miners...
If this hits the alphabet networks or the various pravda-esque rags it will be reported as “thousands”...
