This is Good News For Everyone

TPM: It's official! (No, really! It is!)

Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) will make a bid for the Senate, challenging Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) in the 2010 Pennsylvania primary. Obviously, he's been working up to this morning's announcement for months, but it comes just weeks after his political campaign announced an impressive fundraising haul in the second quarter, allowing them to present what they believe will be a viable challenge to Specter, who will enjoy name recognition, and the backing of the Democratic party, but who became a Democrat just a few months ago after spending most of his career in the GOP.

Go Get Em' Joe!

I had the pleasure of being on a conference call with Joe Sestak and others with the Asian Pacific Americans for Progress organization. He was poignant, understanding and a true leader who understood the significant role Asian Pacific Americans can play in the political spectrum for years to come. This will be a good one to watch as the entitled and embittered Specter will get a run for his money, no diggity, no doubt.
