Joe Sestak Rallies Bucks County to Fight for Change

DOYLESTOWN, Pa. – U.S. Senate candidate Joe Sestak fired up voters in Bucks County today for the final push through Election Day. He urged supporters to leave no stone unturned in efforts to get out the vote on Tuesday and make sure Pennsylvanians know his record of fighting for working families and plans to support the middle class and small businesses — the real engine of our economic growth.

“We just can’t afford to go back to politicians who put special interests and large corporations first,” said Joe. “But if we are going to have a full economic recovery that benefits everyone, we need to remember that you don’t just vote once for change, you keep fighting for change.”

There’s no greater example of an out-of-touch Washington politician than Congressman Toomey, Joe said. He explained that Toomey’s policies supporting the elimination of corporate taxes, privatization of Social Security and the removal of limits on campaign contributions, which help prevent special interests from turning elections into auctions, ignore the concerns of voters across Pennsylvania.

“Congressman Toomey is not a witch, but his policies sure are scary. I don’t understand how he could say ‘buying American’ is an ‘unfortunate tendency,'” said Joe. “He would even help China to the detriment of job creation for the middle class in America, if it meant helping large corporations. He would put Social Security in Wall Street and take the security out of it.

“I’m relying on the common sense of Pennsylvanians. No one is ever going to be fooled by a wolf in sheep’s clothing. That’s Congressman Toomey. We’re going to make sure everyone knows it.”

Joe Sestak was elected to Congress in 2006 after a distinguished 31-year career in the United States Navy, and he is honored to represent the Southeastern Pennsylvania district where he was born and raised. He is a Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate seat from Pennsylvania.  During his Navy career, Joe attained the rank of 3-star Admiral, served in the White House as Director for Defense Policy on President Clinton’s National Security Council, served in the Pentagon as Deputy Chief of Naval Operations, and led a series of operational commands at sea, culminating in command of the USS George Washington Aircraft Carrier Battle Group (30 ships, 100 aircraft, and 15,000 sailors/marines/aviators/SEALs) during combat operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. In our nation’s time of crisis in the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the Navy turned to Joe Sestak to serve as the first Director of “Deep Blue,” the Navy anti-terrorism unit formed in response to the attacks. Joe is the highest-ranking former military officer ever elected to either branch of Congress. He graduated second in his class from the U.S. Naval Academy and holds a Master’s in Public Administration and a PhD in Political Economy and Government from Harvard University. Joe lives in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Susan, and daughter, Alex, and proudly represents the 7th District, where his mother and many of his seven siblings still reside.
