Newspaper: Jack Wagner could knock Specter off in 2010

One of Arlen Specter's least-favorite newspapers, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, is urging Pennsylvania Auditor General Jack Wagner, a moderate Democrat, to challenge Republican-turned-Democrat Arlen Specter in the 2010 Democratic primary for a U.S. Senate seat representing Pennsylvania.

From the editorial:
The Pennsylvania auditor general has been toying with either a run for the Democrats' nomination for governor or U.S. Senate next year. Specter's defection should make up his mind. Given Mr. Wagner's ability to garner statewide votes — his 2008 vote totals outstripped Specter's 2004 vote totals by nearly half a million — Wagner could kick Specter's arse in the primary.

And that, finally, would dispatch Arlen Specter to the dustbin of political history.
Read the full editorial, "Specter bolts: Run, Jack, run!" at the newspaper's Web site.
