Sestak: “It Would Take An Act Of God For Me To Not Get In Now”

Views

If it’s mathematically possible, Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) is even closer to a primary run now than he was last week.

“It would take an act of God for me to not get in now,” Sestak told a Pennsylvania party official, perhaps unaware that a reporter could overhear him.

Reached for comment later, though, Sestak reiterated that the final decision still rests with his family–not God.
