Apparently, GOP Sen. Arlen Specter just announced in the Senate Gallery that he will support AG nominee Eric Holder.

Jim Long posted Twitter message a few minutes ago.

Quite a busy 24-hour period for the B.O. Republicans, eh?

***

More details just in from AP:

Sen. Arlen Specter says he will vote for Eric Holder as the next attorney general, paving the way for an almost certain confirmation.

The Pennsylvania Republican had challenged Holder’s record as a Justice Department official during the Clinton administration.

Previously Specter had called Holder’s judgment “inexplicable” for his role in controversial pardons granted by Clinton, including that of fugitive financier Marc Rich.

On Tuesday, on the eve of a Senate Judiciary Committee vote, Specter told reporters he will support Holder’s nomination. Given previously stated GOP support for Holder, his confirmation now appears all but certain.

“Inexplicable.” Exactly the word I’d use to describe Specter’s judgment.
