Arlen Specter for Mayor?
A recent poll puts the five-term Senator in the lead in a hypothetical primary for Philly Mayor (though he has not signaled so much as a whisper of interest).
Phil Heron of the Delco Daily Times has the story.
Note: PoliticsPA was unable to locate any evidence that the polling firm, Apex Public Opinion Research, has ever released a poll before. Or for that matter, that it actually exists. But “Mayor Specter” certainly is an interesting idea.
Here are the numbers:
Specter – 28 percent
Nutter – 19 percent
Sam Katz – 9 percent
Anthony Hardy Wiliams – 8 percent
Tom Knox – 7 percent
Bob Brady – 6 percent
Alan Butkovitz – 6 percent
