President  Barack Obama will hold a fundraiser for Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Joe Sestak on Sept. 20 in Philadelphia, his office confirmed Friday morning.

It’s the first event Obama will have held for Sestak since the candidate defeated incumbent Democrat Senator Arlen Specter, whom the president supported. Sestak challenged Specter against the wishes of the president, who also held a fundraiser in Philadelphia for Specter before the primary, and the rest of the Democratic Party.

“We’re honored that the President would do an event with Joe during his trip to Pennsylvania,” said spokesman Jonathon Dworkin in a statement. “He and Joe may have had their differences, but they can agree that it is critical to elect a Senator who will put Pennsylvania’s working families first.”

The fundraiser will be one of several events Obama holds in Pennsylvania that day.

Sestak faces Republican U.S. Senate nominee Pat Toomey in November.

  3. The Sustack spokesman said that they are honored that presidend Obama would do an event with Joe. They should be after all Obama was supposedly backing Arlen Spector in the primary but didn’t even show his face in any part of the state except a fund raiser in Philadelphia. A fund raiser that Spector didn’t really need. If Obama would have backed Spector like he alludes to then the dems could be certain to retain the senate seat. Obama seems to say a lot but dosen’t do anything. A perfect example is Don’t ask Don’t tell. Wasn’t that supposed to be one of the first things that Obama was going to take care of. Now he gives us the BS that he has to get the Pentagon’s ok. They have given him the OK but notheing is being done.
