Sestak still on the trail

    The election is over, but Democrat Joe Sestak is still in campaign mode.

    He’s in the midst of a 67-county tour, which he plans to finish in January.

    He insists the barnstorming is about saying “thank you” to supporters from the last election, rather than an early jump on his next campaign.

    In fact, Sestak says he’s “disappointed” people are only viewing his visits through the prism of another election.

    He says officials from both parties are only focused on campaigning and politics, rather than supporting good policies.

    “What’s happening in the meantime is that people are being forgotten about and lost,” says Sestak. 

    He says he hasn’t ruled another Senate run in or out, but does want to continue “some form” of public service.

    The Democrat gave up his Congressional seat to run for Senate, so for the immediate future, he’s returning to private life.
