At a Pennsylvania Progressive forum this Saturday, Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) and Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) were supposed to be doing separate Q&As, one after the other.
But Specter apparently jumped the gun and climbed onstage while Sestak was giving his closing remarks, and a moderator asked him to get off the stage.
Watch, care of PCN:
The two are fighting for the Democratic nomination for Specter’s Senate seat.
Specter’s campaign manager, Chris Nicholas, told TPM that Specter did not break any rules. Mike Morrill, the executive director of Keystone Progress, which sponsored the forum, said it was just a result of confusion about timing.
Sestak’s campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
