Description"Former Sen. Arlen Specter (Pa.) says he might vote for Mitt Romney in November, depending on which version of Romney shows up for the general election.

“I’m going to wait to see which Romney it is,” said Specter in an interview with The Hill at his elegant apartment in Georgetown.

Specter, who gave President Obama the 60th vote needed to pass landmark healthcare reform legislation through the Senate, applauded Romney for signing similar reforms into law while serving as governor of Massachusetts.

He made headlines across the nation in April of 2009 when he left the Republican Party to become a Democrat. His switch gave Obama the votes he needed to pass two of his biggest legislative accomplishments: healthcare reform and Wall Street reform.

Specter had served more than 28 years in the Senate representing Pennsylvania as a Republican and chaired the Judiciary Committee during the confirmations of Supreme Court Justices John Roberts and Samuel Alito."
