Biden emails for Specter

Vice President Joe Biden showed his support of Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) on Thursday, sending an email touting Specter’s accomplishments.

Biden’s email went to Organizing for America’s Pennsylvania list. Check it out below.

Couple things to add: First, the email is available on Specter’s Facebook page (!). And Second, note at the bottom that there is now a website with the url:

Dear Friend –

Three weeks ago, my friend Senator Arlen Specter added one more feat to his long and impressive career — he became a Democrat.

Over the years, we’ve certainly had our disagreements. During that time, however, Arlen has been my friend, my confidant, and my partner in enacting many pieces of significant legislation.

For more than 25 years, we’ve ridden the train together back to Wilmington and Philadelphia. We’ve had some great debates and discussions on the train — and gotten to know each other so well — that it gives me great pleasure to be able to work even more closely with Arlen now.

His independence, integrity, and piercing intellect will continue to be a tremendous asset to the people of Pennsylvania, and now, to the Democratic caucus in the Senate.

I know that he’ll keep up his great work on issues ranging from cancer research funding to global warming, deficit control to immigration reform — and in our coming debate to reform America’s health care system.

Thousands of you have already written messages of support, welcoming Arlen to the party, and he was tremendously pleased to receive them.

I know that once you come to know him like I do, you’ll be just as happy as I am to have him.
