Philadelphia Inquirer Endorses Joe Sestak

“Sestak Puts Good Ideas First”

MEDIA, Pa. – The Philadelphia Inquirer, Pennsylvania’s largest newspaper, today announced its endorsement of Joe Sestak for United States Senate. The newspaper highlighted Joe’s “moderate, reasonable” positions on the issues and pointed out that “Toomey’s personality may not be as abrasive as Santorum’s, but his votes would rub a majority of Pennsylvanians the wrong way.”

Some excerpts:

“As the former head of the anti-tax Club for Growth in Washington, Toomey helped to defeat fellow Republicans who cooperated with Democrats too often.”

“Toomey, having done his part for party purity, now asks independent voters to believe he can be bipartisan in Washington.”

“His 31 years of Navy service give Sestak a unique perspective when fewer and fewer members of Congress are veterans. He also was director of defense policy in the Clinton White House. Widespread budget cuts will be needed in the years ahead. Sestak understands more than most lawmakers where to find waste in the Defense Department.”

“In a Sestak campaign ad, Toomey says that his voting record in the House was “indistinguishable” from that of conservative former Sen. Rick Santorum. Actually, Toomey was being modest. His voting record was even more conservative than Santorum’s, whose far-right views were rejected by voters in a landslide in 2006. Toomey’s personality may not be as abrasive as Santorum’s but his votes would rub a majority of Pennsylvanians the wrong way.”

“Sestak has moderate, reasonable ideas for promoting clean energy and providing small businesses with incentives to create more jobs. In the Senate, Sestak’s views would be much more in line with most Pennsylvanians.”
