Sestak “Re-elected” Ad Wins Toughest TV Advertisement Award

The ad that ended the career of U.S. Senator Arlen Specter has won a national award from Campaigns & Elections magazine.

“The Switch” was one of three winners in the “Toughest TV Advertisement” category. Former Congressman Joe Sestak’s ad agency, the Campaign Group, also won the distinction of “Best Bare-Knuckled Street Fight Victory” for their client’s defeat of the 30-year Senate institution.

From the announcement:

On February 4, 2011, Campaigns & Elections magazine held the third annual Reed Award Dinner in Washington, DC.  Political consultants and public affairs executives were recognized for their outstanding work and creativity in the 2010 mid-term elections.

“Winning a Reed Award is considered to be one of the most prestigious honors in the business of politics and Campaigns & Elections congratulates the finalists and winners,” said Publisher of Campaigns & Elections, Paul Plawin.  “It is truly a remarkable achievement and we would like to thank the judges and the winners for their contributions to electoral politics and making the Reed Awards such a memorable experience.”

And here is the ad, The Switch.

  1. If that’s not possible, you can take a section of
    your hair and wrap it around the band to hide it and tuck it under to hold
    the hair in place. Icons such as screen siren Marilyn Monroe define the era and her classic medium length wavy bob
    is a guaranteed route to stunning vintage glamour.

    Some finishing wax applied very lightly and you will have perfect sedu celebrity hairstyles every

  2. David,

    It’s that ad that prevented another Blanche Lincoln-type loss in PA.

    Do you do anything other than troll the internet looking for Joe Sestak stories all day long? This man is the future of the Pennsylvania Democratic party. Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

  3. It’s that ad that guaranteed us Senator Pat Toomey. Way to go, Joe! Thanks for being even more self-serving that Arlen ever was, and leading the party and ticket off the cliff.
