Anxious to Avoid Toomey, Specter Runs Into Sestak!
Sen. Specter earns the World's Smallest Violin as [Joe] Sestak, a career military man and second-termer in the House (shown on the left of Hillary Clinton), a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy who retired from the Navy as a two-star admiral and holds graduate degrees from Harvard, says he's inclined to go for the seat, too. He is regarded as a strong contender along with Pat Toomey and former Governor Tom Ridge, according to "The Swamp."
UPDATE: Gov. Ridge announced today (Thursday, 7 May) that he has decided not to run for Senate in 2010. Whew!
