Specter Portrait To Be Unveiled At Philly Museum

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Sen. Arlen Specter's official portrait is being unveiled Friday at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

Specter is Pennsylvania's longest serving senator.

His portrait was commissioned by Yale University, which is where he attended law school. The painting by Michael Shane Neal will hang in the law school's library.

Actor Michael J. Fox, Gov. Ed Rendell and former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole are expected to speak at the unveiling.

Specter has already said he will run for re-election when his term is up in two years.
