In support of Pennsylvania Senate candidate Joe Sestak’s campaign, I am forwarding an email from his campaign entitled “Sestak 47% – Toomey 44% !!?”
I hope you’ll support Joe Sestak by making a contribution.
Sestak faces the very conservative former Rep. Pat Toomey and he needs our help. The Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee is pouring money into the state to run ads attacking Sestak

Sestak 47% – Toomey 44% !!
In a just released Garin-Hart-Young Poll, we’ve pulled ahead of Congressman Toomey … the early stages of our closing “Get-Out-The-Vote” (“GOTV”) Operation – “Bring It On Home” – are working.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that yesterday the National Republican Senatorial Committee (“NRSC”) – in response to the poll numbers “moving in this race” – launched its first ad on behalf of Congressman Toomey. We’ve since learned that the NRSC has now doubled its ad buy in these last few weeks as the race has started to shift to the Democrats.
We are driving forward.
In response to this latest poll, Pennsylvania’s Patriot News put forth its headline, “Joe Sestak has taken lead over Pat Toomey”, while the Philadelphia Inquirer reported “Sestak has clawed his way” into the lead, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette stated “Sestak catching the wind.”
And Hotline said it well:
“Sestak … is finally closing in the race’s final three weeks …
The Sestak campaign and DSCC have carpet-bombed the state’s airwaves since early September with millions of dollars in ads, and most of them, like a recent spot that criticized Toomey for outsourcing jobs, have focused on bringing moderate Democrats back into the fold.
In a state where Republicans have a million fewer registered voters, Democrats need only win over their party members to win the state.”
There are 1.2 million more Democrats than Republicans in our state … but we are focused not only on bringing Democrats “back into the fold,” but also Independents and moderate Republicans that are turned off by Congressman Toomey’s extreme views and are accepting of our pragmatist approach to getting our country moving again.
Thank you for getting us this far … let’s keep the momentum moving forward … we are just 13 days away from victory!
