Google news is FULL of links to articles about the sudden reversal - freekin cool! Here's an example.
Even our own usually pro-corporate CDT has something interesting to say:
Republican Pat Toomey, echoing business leaders, has seized on Obama administration policies supported by Democrat Joe Sestak, such as the new federal health care law. Toomey says such policies are slowing the recovery; worries over the cost of new regulations and taxes have rendered companies unwilling to hire, he has said.
But Sestak, struggling to gain ground in independent polls, is targeting policies supported by Toomey that, he maintains, are friendly to multinational companies and give them incentives to move operations to foreign countries.
Toomey approves of China dumping cheap, government-subsidized goods on American consumers and supports a loophole that allows American companies to earn profits overseas without paying taxes on them at home, Sestak said.
In comparison, Sestak said he has pushed for tax breaks and guaranteed bank loans to small businesses, which do the most hiring in the nation’s economy.
“This is the engine of our economy, this is it, small businesses. Congressman Toomey says it’s ‘an unfortunate tendency’ to buy American,” Sestak told about two dozen employees of a Harrisburg- area manufacturer of exercise and rehabilitation pools.Read more: http://www.centredaily.com/2010/10/16/2275598/sestak-jockeys-for-jobs-authority.html#ixzz12vybOWoG
Here's the latest exciting letter from the campaign:
The Pittsburgh Post Gazette is reporting: “Sestak's poll jump continues to dominate the conversation”!
Fox News is reporting “GOPers Acknowledge Problems in Pennsylvania”:
- “Republican strategists are growing more and more concerned about the state of the Senate race in Pennsylvania ...
As Toomey and Sestak head into their final debate tonight, the stakes couldn't be higher.
A Republicans strategist who is advising several campaigns in the Keystone State, but not Toomey's, said that the situation is "dangerous" and that the risks were "very real."
"People took this race for granted for too long. People forget that this is an overwhelmingly Democratic state," he told Power Play. "This was never going to be easy."
The ultra-conservative Nation Review, who is supporting Congressman Toomey, is also reporting:
- “Bad News for Toomey ... Panic! Panic! A second poll has Pat Toomey trailing.”
The GOP “has a problem in Pennsylvania” and they are “panicking”. Please help us keep the pressure on the GOP with this new-found information by making a contribution!!
Here's what others are saying with the release of a 3rd poll in-a-row (over the past 6 days) that shows us leading the race.
Talking Point Memo says:
- “now virtually everyone is chattering about a Democratic surprise in the Keystone state.”
Pennsylvania's Morning Call is reporting:
- “Sestak vaults over Toomey.”
Pennsylvania's Patriot News says:
- “Sestak, Toomey set for debate among flurry of polls that show Sestak surge.'”
Hotline is reporting:
- "Sestak has all the mo' right now … Toomey has to right the ship and Sestak has to stay on offense."
We do have “all the mo' now” … but we have to stay on offense. That's why its critical we reach our one-day target of 1,787 donors AND $17,780.
Please make an IMMEDIATE contribution to support our one day targets!!
Joe is going on the offense with tonight's debate against Congressman Toomey. Let's support him … by hitting our one day target!
It's time to bring this race on home!
