U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey continues to attack Sen. Arlen Specter, even after the five-term incumbent switched parties. Toomey spoke Tuesday at a Pennsylvania Press Club luncheon, and clearly relished the idea that Specter became a Democrat because he decided he could not win the GOP primary.

Toomey joked that he got into the race thinking he would beat Specter in the primary, but never expected to drive him out of the party.

Afterward, he told reporters Specter's decision raises questions about whether he can be trusted.

Toomey says he thinks Democratic primary voters are going to ask themselves whether they can trust Specter after Specter repeatedly said he would not change his party registration.
