Specter to hit campaign trail for ex-rival Sestak

Font Size:

Outgoing Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) on Monday will campaign for the man who ended his three-decade Senate career, Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.)

Sestak defeated the Republican-turned-Democrat in a hotly contested primary race in May, but the two will put their differences aside at a event in Philadelphia on Monday, according to the Philadelphia Jewish Voice. The event will be the first time Specter appears on Sestak’s behalf.

Specter is scheduled to appear alongside Sens. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and his Pennsylvania counterpart, Sen. Bob Casey (D), in an effort to boost the second-term congressman, who trails his Republican opponent former Rep. Pat Toomey in the polls.
