According to liberal blog Daily Kos, former Republican, now Democratic Senator Arlen Spector from Pennsylvania will be the benefactor of a reception next Tuesday at the Regency Hotel on Park Avenue, Manhattan, NY. Steve Pigeon, fresh off his NYS senate coup, is on the committee for the event. The event chair is New Jersey senator Bob Menendez
The party starts at 5:30 and you can come as a friend for $1,000, or as a co-host for $2,500. According to a spokesperson at Katz Watson Group, the Washington DC political fundraising organization coordinating the event, “There’s no sit-down dinner, or anything like that. The one in New York is just a ‘reception.'” Fundraisers for Specter are also taking place in the nation’s capital, and in Pennsylvania.
Interesting how in New York, it was elected Democrats turning Republican, while in Pennsylvania, it was a senator turning Democrat from Republican. Former Erie County Democratic Party Chairman Pigeon appears to support Specter no matter what hat he chooses to wear, if this $1,000 contribution made in 2007 to Citizens for Arlen Specter is any indication. Specter was still with the Grand Old Party then.
