Ending weeks of speculation, Senator Arlen Specter (R-PA) finally broke his silence about Card Check today and said he opposes the legislation.

Specter, who was the only Republican to support Card Check in 2007, made his announcement in a speech from the Senate floor today.  In his remarks he called the secret ballot "the cornerstone of how contests are decided in a Democratic society."
