Sestak Predicts He'll Win Close Pa. Senate Primary

Sunday, 16 May 2010 10:05 AM

U.S. Rep Joe Sestak predicts he'll win Pennsylvania's hotly contested Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.

With just three days until the election, Sestak told CNN on Sunday, "Never do something that's not going to happen."

Sestak is challenging five-term Sen. Arlen Specter, who switched parties last year after 28 years as a GOP senator. The moderate Specter has been endorsed by President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party.

Sestak, a former Navy vice admiral, says Specter switched parties to save his job. Specter contends he willfully risked GOP fury by supporting Obama's economic stimulus bill.

Specter was to attend a Pittsburgh-area rally later Sunday, while Sestak has scheduled a rally in his suburban Philadelphia district.
