Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) has a colorful new ad in the Pennsylvania Senate race. In the ad, Sestak holds up a bag of his dog’s excrement — comparing it to the national problems left behind by Republicans for the Democrats to deal with.
“I’m Joe Sestak, and this is Belle,” Sestak says, showing his little dog. “My family loves Belle. But she can make a mess. And we have to clean it up. I think about Belle when I see Congressman Toomey’s ads attacking me.
“It made me sick to bail out the banks. But I had to clean up the mess left behind by these guys,” Sestak says, referring to photos of Toomey and former President George W. Bush. “They let Wall Street run wild. Now Pat Toomey is attacking me for cleaning up his mess.”
The TPM Poll Average gives Toomey a lead of 47.2%-41.3%.
