9. Sestak ain't running - he's merely the threat to keep Specter honest
And Sestak doens't have the fundraising capcities that Specter or someone like Allyson Schwartz would have.
But Sestak is a great guy, I've worked and donated to 2 of his campaigns. Plenty of deals were made and I'm sure some were made to Sestak. Perhaps Joe has been promised Arlen's seat incase Arlen passes away before the 2010 term ends.
Sestak refuses to rule out Senate run against Specter @ 2:10 pm by Jeremy P. Jacobs
Congressman Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) on Wednesday refused to rule out a run for the Senate in 2010 despite Sen. Arlen Specter's (Pa.) decision to switch parties and become a Democrat.
"I am going to have to wait," Sestak, who has been mulling a run for the Senate, just said on MSNBC.
MSNBC reported earlier that Democrats promised Specter they would support him in his reelection bid against former Congressman Pat Toomey. Sestak is the first of other potential Democratic contenders to comment on Specter's decision.
Sestak said he is waiting "to see what is running for," implying that he wants to see what Specter will proactively stand for in his campaign instead of just opposing Republican policies.
"If the alternative is Toomey, that's one thing," Sestak said, appearing to indicate that he would support Specter if he is the Democratic nominee.
