BREAKING: Former Sen. Arlen Specter, who served Pennsylvania for three decades and notably switched parties in 2009 — paving the way for the Affordable Care Act’s passage by giving Democrats 60 votes in the Senate — has died at the age of 82.
RIP, Senator. A true independent.
There are no words to describe what a sad day for America this is.
This is sad…I grew up in PA and respected him.
