Sestak is a dreadful candidate IMO for PA, way, way, way too far left. The only phone calls I’ve received are from the Sestak campaign who also has more ads up on TV than Toomey, so it’s apparent that the Democrats and the unions are going to dump a ton of $ into the race hoping to get another rubber stamp for Obama like Bob Casey. Unfortunately, they may succeed as PA is very blue when you consider the rampant fraud in every election in Philly. Toomey will have to win by at least 5% to overcome the voter fraud.
