Alabama Next Party-Switch Test

Tuesday, 25 May 2010 10:31 AM EDT

Former Democratic Rep. Parker Griffith of Alabama will shortly be tested by voters in his new incarnation as a Republican -- on the heels of Arlen Specter's ill-fated jumping of his party's ship in Pennsylvania, according to a report in rollcall.com.

Griffith’s two GOP challengers in the primary contest are Madison County Commissioner Mo Brooks and businessman and Navy veteran Les Phillip.

With perhaps Specter's fate in mind, Brooks has steered clear of  tar-brushing Griffith as a politician who changed sides simply to serve his own desire to get elected. Instead, he has focused on trust.

“I think trust is a major issue,” Brooks said on Monday. “Party-switching is a component of trust, but there’s so many different things we didn’t want to limit to one issue. ... There are a dozen different flip-flops Parker Griffith has engaged in.”
