The answer? Arlen Specter. A liberal Republican from Pennsylvania who had won five Senate races, he realized he had no shot at winning another GOP primary, so he switched to the Democratic Party in 2009. But, even with President Obama’s endorsement, he was defeated in the 2010 primary to Congressman Joe Sestak.
And the randomly selected winner is … Richard Wong of Derwood, Md. Richard wins the coveted Political Junkie button.
