Washington Post: Chuck Hagel and the “me for me” endorsement
Former Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel (R) will throw his support behind Rep. Joe Sestak‘s (D) Senate candidacy tomorrow, the latest in a series of out-of-state surrogates getting behind the Pennsylvania Democrat.
“The two-term Nebraska Senator will speak about Joe’s independence and focus on doing what’s right not for Wall Street or Washington special interests but for Pennsylvania’s working families,” reads a release from the Sestak camp announcing the news.
Hagel’s endorsement comes less than a week after New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg backed Sestak, touting — you guessed it! — his independence.
