The Democratic Senate primary is a very tight race. Joe Sestak greeted voters at a Philadelphia polling place Tuesday morning. He says it’s time for Pennsylvania to send a new senator to Washington.

The congressman stood in the misting rain wearing his familiar flight jacket as he shook hands and handed out his Blackberry number.
With just hours until Pennsylvania Democrats finished deciding their pick for Senate, Sestak still had plenty to tell voters.
“I want them to know that I intend to be a public servant, not a politician. It isn’t about keeping my job as a Congressman, it’s about being a public servant. I learned in the military that accountability matters. And I want to hold Washington responsible for turning the focus back to working families and those who want to work.”
Poll workers at the William Penn House says most residents were tight lipped but already decided.
As Sestak was leaving the high-rise at 19th and Chestnut, he seemed to be mostly collecting congratulations from voters who’d already cast their ballots.
