Pat Toomey, running against a 'liberal'
The former congressman who spent six years waiting to run against Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) again launches his first attack ad against Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.), his new rival.
In the final week before the Democratic primary, when it became clear that Sestak had an easier path to victory than Specter, there was a notable shift in the Toomey campaign's attacks and e-mails to reporters. The new threat, they said, was "Joe Says-Tax." But it was clear that the general election message against a mainstream Democrat in a blue state had not yet been figured out, and there's some worry that the first post-primary poll will show Sestak bouncing into a lead.
