Toomey and Sestak “neck and neck”

Monday, November 1st, 2010

It’s a race that’s seen $25 million in outside spending, most of it for slash and burn TV ads. At a rally in Bristol yesterday, Republican Pat Toomey stayed on message, calling Democrat Joe Sestak the extremist in the contest.

“Honestly, I didn’t know there was any space there but he has found a way to the left of Nancy Pelosi.  He has done it, but the good news is I’m pretty sure that Pennsylvania is not going to elect a San Francisco liberal to the United States Senate.”

But the race at this point is more about turnout than persuasion, and Sestak tried to inspire his volunteers at a Doylestown parking lot.

“We know where we are, where we always are in our races – neck and neck! And darn it, we’re going to give it our all. Can I say thank you Bucks County… can I count on you for us?”

Polls open at seven on Tuesday.

    It was a great day for a Get-Out-the-Vote Rally in Doylestown, at Joe Sestak’s campaign headquarters. Democratic candidates gave enthusiastic, heartfelt speeches – and urged everyone to keep on fighting up through Election Day.

    The only negative part of the rally was the attempted disruption by a Tea Party van, which kept driving by the rally – blaring music, yelling at the crowd through a megaphone,and trying to drown out the speeches being given. We heard that there was an altercation, where police and an ambulance had to be called.

    It’s this type of immature, disruptive behavior that turns voters off – and even intimidates them. Uncalled for.
