Arlen Specter's decision to oppose card check doesn't seem to have deterred likely primary challenger Pat Toomey. The former congressman said in a statement:

"The difference between Specter's vote on the big government stimulus bill and Specter's vote on card check: a threat in the Republican primary. It's nice to see Sen. Specter reverse his position in a positive direction on card check, but I wish it didn't take primary opposition to get him to do it."
