Now the Club for Growth, the conservative political group that is a longtime Specter foe, wants to help any disgruntled Republican donors take now-Democrat Specter up on his offer.

The Club is asking the Federal Election Commission (FEC) if it can send a letter or make a telephone call to Specter’s donors informing them that they can ask his campaign for a contribution refund.
