Stories: Election 2010: An Interview with Senate Candidate Joe Sestak

October 29, 2010

The 2010 midterm elections are now just four days away, with a number of competitive and high-profile races to be decided in Pennsylvania. WPSU is dedicating much of the next two hours to interviews with the candidates. You'll hear from both candidates for Governor of Pennsylvania and all three candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives, 5th District. We begin with the hotly contested race for U.S. Senate. Republican Congressmen Pat Toomey and Democratic Congressman Joe Sestak are vying for the seat held by five-term Senator Arlen Specter, whom Sestak defeated in the May primary. Both candidates were offered one-on-one, half-hour interviews, however candidate Toomey's office failed to accept numerous invitations for our interview. Here's our conversation with Joe Sestak, recorded on October 15th.
