As a result, Democratic Senators from across the country have spoken with Montgomery County Commissioner Josh Shapiro about a potential Senate run to challenge the former Navy Admiral, according to the Washington Post.
Sestak has rubbed several Democratic leaders the wrong way in the past, including President Obama and Vice President Biden, when he ran against Arlen Specter in the Democratic Primary for Senate.
Shapiro, on the other hand, is recognized for being an ally to Gov. Wolf. In fact, just last week the Governor named him as Chair of the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.
While Shapiro has yet to respond to these reports we’ve recently learned that Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski is moving towards challenging Sestak.
