  1. Wonder why the June meeting of Dem state party is being held in Allentown? It is usually in Harrisburg or Hershey. Not because they will do anything to bash Sestak? Active, hardworking Dems in Delco, Chester and The part of Montco in the district where Sestak served as Congressman support him. It really disturbs me when National and State party leadersexpect us to do their bidding. They any have the money and the spotlight, but Theyy are not the workers.

  2. I am waiting to see if he gets the endorsement of Polish military leader, Brigadier General Casimir Pulaski.

  3. Any endorsements more than 50 miles from Allentown?

    BTW, Sestak’s FEC report finally posted.
    Cash on Hand Dec 31st 1,560,667
    Cash on Hand Mar 31st 1,675,156

    Net gain: just under $115K for the quarter At this pace, he’d reach $2 million by Christmas

    Sestak raise $311K and spent $197K. That is a HUGE burn-rate (63%), especially with nothing to show for it.

    The previous quarter, Sestak netted $280K (more than twice as much as this quarter) by raising $500K and spending $220K. (burn rate 44%)

    On an interesting note, some his staffers have switched from “consultants” to “payroll” and Sestak is finally starting to pay some payroll taxes.
