CNN.com - Specter in narrow win: "Veteran GOP Sen. Arlen Specter narrowly won a fifth term, after a close primary battle with Rep. Pat Toomey, who argued to Pennsylvanians that Specter simply wasn't conservative enough."

How can CNN make such an amateur mistake? A primary does not win another term for anyone, unless, perhaps you consider an uncontested race, which this certainly is not. I hope they correct this soon, because it's shameful.

UPDATE [4/28/2004 - 1:34]: It has apparently now been corrected to: "Veteran GOP Sen. Arlen Specter narrowly won a shot at a fifth term, after a close primary battle with Rep. Pat Toomey, who argued to Pennsylvanians that Specter simply wasn't conservative enough." (emphasis added)
