According to a Rasmussen poll out this morning shows Republican Pat Toomey (AP photo above) with a 45-39 percent lead over Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak in the Senate race, virtually the same as Toomey's 45-38 lead two weeks ago in the same poll. But that might not be the best news for the former Congressman from outside Allentown.
KDKA's politics guru and prolific tweeter Jon Delano points out this morning that in the past two weeks, both Toomey and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have been pounding Sestak in television ads across the state, with Sestak unable to rebut in the paid media because he spent most of his cash taking out Sen. Arlen Specter in the primary. "Are Toomey & US Chamber wasting $$ in attack ads on Sestak in July? Rasmussen poll has Toomey stuck at 45, while Sestak climbs 1 pt to 39," Delano writes.
Also, we've been writing a lot lately about Dems giving away old donations from Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., who was formally charged Thursday with 13 ethics violations. According to the Inky, Sestak will give $12,000 in past donations from Rangel to The Alex's Lemonade Stand foundation for pediatric cancer, a charity that Sestak has long supported.
