Michael J. Fox is making his return to the midterm elections.
After cutting some memorable campaign commercials for now-Sens. Ben CardinBen CardinTim Kaine backs call to boost funding for Israeli missile defense Democratic National Convention event calendar Bernie’s ‘revolution’ marches to Philly MORE (D-Md.) and Claire McCaskillClaire McCaskillThe Republicans' hypocrisy on minimum wage Watchdog faults Energy Department over whistleblower retaliation Wagner passes on NRCC bid, backs Stivers MORE (D-Mo.) four years ago, Fox is back in a new spot for Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.).
"Arlen Specter is moving forward," Fox says. "He's won the battles to double funding for biomedical research, to find cures and to save lives.
"He's smart, tough and always moving forward."
Fox's 2006 midterm ads for Cardin and McCaskill drew plenty of attention, especially after Rush Limbaugh accused him of exaggerating the effects of his Parkinson's disease during the ads.
Specter faces Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) in the May 18 primary. If he wins there, polls show he would also face a tough match in November, with former Rep. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) leading.
