Norm Coleman on Arlen Specter

Yes, I know, the Specter controversy is dead. But I thought our readers might be interested to see the letter I received from Sen. Norm Coleman (R-MN) on the issue.

December 1, 2004

Mr. Jason Adkins
(address omitted)

Thank you for taking the time to contact me concerning Senator Arlen Specter
(R-PA) becoming the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

While I have great respect for and share many, if not most, of the causes that
compel some to oppose Senator Specter becoming chairman of this committee, I
strongly support his bid to become chairman. 

And, although I am not a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, all of my
Republican colleagues who serve on it, including current Chairman Orrin Hatch
(R-UT), support him.

Senator Specter has served with distinction in the United States Senate and on
the Senate Judiciary Committee for years.  His understanding and command of the
issues that come before this important committee are unrivaled.  He is a man of
sound character, solid judgment, and of the utmost integrity.  Senator Specter’s
record is one having supported every judicial nomination that President George
W. Bush has sent to the Senate for its advice and consent.  He was also an
outspoken champion of President George H. W. Bush’s nomination of Clarence
Thomas to the United States Supreme Court. 

Senator Specter has also publicly committed to working to ensure that the
President’s nominees receive a fair vote in committee and an up or down vote on
the Senate floor.

Please know that I always appreciate hearing from you and that I value your
advice even when, from time to time, we may disagree.  But, on this issue, I
hope you will join me in supporting a good man for Chairman of the Senate
Judiciary Committee.

These letters from Coleman and other Senators to constituents leads me to believe that the Republican leadership has Specter by the short hairs. I find it heartening, don't you, that our own Norm is a polished insider capable of sticking to a decent party line while no doubt casting ominous glances at ol' Arlen. He's looking more and more like a presidential candidate.
