Sestak ad agency wins award for anti-Specter commercial

    Former Congressman Joe Sestak pulled out all the stops to unseat former U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter. And he’s being awarded for it. “The Switch” commercial ad has won a Reed Award for the “Toughest TV Advertisement.”


    The ad features video of Specter saying he switched parties to get re-elected.

    Sestak’s ad agency, the Campaign Group, also won ““Best Bare-Knuckled Street Fight Victory” for defeating Specter.
