The Nation : GOP Asks Specter's Help

September 27, 1987

Pennsylvania GOP leaders tried to move Sen. Arlen Specter off the fence, saying he should support the party and President Reagan by voting to confirm Supreme Court nominee Robert H. Bork. Specter, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, has refused to take a position on Bork. The Republican State Committee's leaders, meeting in Philadelphia, urged the Senate panel to vote to confirm Bork. Meanwhile, a group of about 80 students, representing Pennsylvania College Republicans and the Young Republicans, chanted "We want Bork," and "We need Bork" as Specter arrived to participate in the state committee's meeting.
