Sestak released a TV ad 10/15, produced by the Campaign Group. Full script, "Belle:"
SESTAK: "I'm Joe Sestak and this is Belle. 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. They let Wall Street run wild. Now Pat Toomey is attacking me for cleaning up his mess. I authorize this message because we deserve leaders who solve problems instead of playing politics" (release, 10/15).
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette endorsed Sestak (10/17). Pittsburgh Tribune-Review endorses Toomey (10/17).
