Well, well, well….it’s almost fun watching the carnivorous dinosaurs eat each other. You also know what this means; at the end of the day, Sestak has got to be defeated because he is accepting the endorsement of one of the worst offenders in Congress. That old adage about judging a person’s character by the people that he associates with is raising it’s ugly head again. Hopefully, this time around more people will be paying attention, and act judiciously.
Sestak picks up big endorsement in race against Specter
Rep. Barney Frank opens the door for Congressional Democrats to buck their leadership
When Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter switched parties and became a Democrat, he immediately got the support of his new party’s leadership, including President Obama, for his upcoming re-election fight. But now another party leader has given Congressional liberals room to back the man challenging Specter in the Democratic primary next year, Rep. Joe Sestak.
Rep. Barney Frank, D-Mass., will be endorsing Sestak during an event in Philadelphia on Monday. It’s an important get for Sestak; an endorsement from your average House liberal is nice, but Frank’s nod means more.
Because he’s one of the most influential men in the House, Frank can bring other members of Congress along with him. At the very least, he gives those among his colleagues who might otherwise worry about angering the White House and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid some cover.
