A day with Joe Sestak

Last week I went down to Washington to interview both Congressman Joe Sestak and Senator Arlen Specter. Here’s the first of two profiles on the Democratic Senate candidates.


Like a borderline athlete who’s determined to make up for his lack of raw talent with pure hustle, Congressman Joe Sestak is trying to compensate for Senator Arlen Specter’s lead in the polls by outworking his primary opponent.

Scott Detrow spent time in Washington, DC with the lawmaker, who packed in a full day of campaigning and legislating.
