Sestak’s “Plan for Securing America in the 21st Century” tour will kick off at 9 a.m. on Tuesday at the Lancaster County Democratic Committee headquarters, where he will speak about the United States’ global leadership role and strategy of engagement.
By noon, the former Congressman will be at the Irvine Auditorium at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia to talk about national security challenges, from regional conflicts to global disruptions.
The Seegers Union at Muhlenberg College will host Sestak at 2:30 p.m. tomorrow – where the candidate will talk up the power of diplomacy and economic partnerships – before he finishes the first half of his tour at The Main Bean cafe in Wilkes-Barre at 5 p.m.
On Wednesday, the former three-star Navy Admiral will begin his day at the Bayfront Grille in Erie with a short speech on America competing in a global marketplace.
It is then on to the University of Pittsburgh School of Law for Sestak, where he is scheduled to talk at noon about the national security challenges posed by climate change. The tour will conclude at Lena’s Cafe in Altoona at 3:30 p.m.
This tour comes in the wake of a debate between Sestak and his Democratic opponents, Katie McGinty and John Fetterman, at the annual Progressive Summit. A straw poll afterwards showed the crowd favoring Sestak over his challengers.
