Despite efforts by the White House and his own party to drive him from the Senate race in Pennsylvania nine months ago, two-term congressman Joe Sestak took on the establishment, and knocked off Senator Arlen Specter in a remarkable upset for the Democratic nomination. As he faces what will likely be one of the most expensive Senate races in the country, hear this headline-making congressman give his perspective on the inner workings of big-time politics as well as his views on bailouts, health care and national security.
A Philadelphia native, Sestak graduated second in his class from the U.S. Naval Academy and is the highest-ranking former military officer ever elected to Congress.
