Specter stumps for Sestak

U.S. Rep. Joseph Sestak, D-7, of Edgmont, will receive support from the man he defeated in the U.S. Senate primary during a fundraiser in Philadelphia Monday, the Sestak campaign confirmed Wednesday.
Longtime incumbent U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter, D-Pa., whom Sestak defeated in a grueling primary battle in May, will join fellow Senators Bob Casey and Chuck Schumer, of New York, for the fundraiser.
Specter endorsed Sestak shortly after his defeat in the May primary, but this will be the first appearance by both men together since then.
According to a brief in the Philadelphia Jewish Voice, the event will focus on Sestak’s support for Israel, which has been under attack over the summer from various conservative groups.
Sestak will also appear at a public rally in Philadelphia with President Barack Obama Sunday. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden have made several appearances in the run up to the November 2 election, trying to shake Democratic voters out of an apparent lethargy.
