PA-Sen: Sestak Launches Statewide Book Tour
The two-time Democratic Senate candidate will launch his book tour with an event in Erie on Tuesday, where he will discuss his book, “Walking in Your Shoes to Restore the American Dream.” According to the press release, the book is a compilation of the “hopes and challenges he saw as he walked with people across Pennsylvania.”
Tuesday’s event will begin with a .422 mile walk to the venue to symbolize Sestak’s 422-mile walk across the state. At the event, he will talk specifically about a chapter in his book that focuses on small business growth, which he refers to as the “star running back” of the nation’s economy.
When Sestak kicked off his long walk across the state, he was the only Democratic candidate in the race to challenge Republican Sen. Pat Toomey. Since then, Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski has thrown his hat in the ring, giving Sestak, who lacks the support of state and national Democrats, a significant challenge.
According to the press release, Sestak’s campaign is focused on reducing the “trust deficit,” and ensuring that political leaders are being accountable to the American people.
“Joe also knows that American leadership is most effective when it embraces an alignment between the dual tenets of our exceptional national character: rugged individualism and the common mission,” the press release states. “It is the idea that by securing fair individual opportunities for all, we can pursue and safeguard the commonwealth of our country together.”
Sestak’s event will begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday, but he invites all supporters to join him at 9:30 a.m. to take part in the walk to the venue.
