Does Obama ever back the winning horse? Specter loses, despite Obama's best efforts.
Following his party switch last spring, Specter was seen as a strong favorite in his primary fight against Sestak. President Barack Obama did quite a bit for Specter -- appearing at a rally with the incumbent and appearing in radio and television ads for him in the Philadelphia area in the final weeks of the campaign.
These results are very familiar for "B+" Obama. You'd think that even a blind squirrel would find a nut now and then.
